Album Notes by Caz Caswell:
These were my first efforts of shooting at airports since my return from Canada in 2001. I was spoilt with ramp access for almost 30 years, and this was going to take some getting use to.
My ramp access will provide great memories for sure, and many pictures from Canada with several from Gatwick will be easily spotted on this new site.
Its hard to believe now, how great Gatwick was for photography back in the 1960's and early 1970's when walking along the fingers meant being able to shoot nice and close pictures.
Heathrow too was not bad either, and good shots, albeit, a bit further away, could be had from the perimeter road of aircraft landing, or taking off.

On my return my first chance to shoot pictures at Gatwick was from the gallery, and sadly this disappeared very quickly. However I did manage to shoot a few pictures of Gatwick Runway 08R through the crash gate as aircraft held for their take off slot.

Heathrow, you are just as limited, but you can get some reasonable landing shots as seen in this gallery.

At Heathrow there are 2 main fields to shoot from; one by the housing estate [playing field] just up from Hatton Cross underground station for Runway 27L, and the other in a field just across from Stanwell Moor Road, is ideal for landing pictures on Runway 09L.
Another spot is by the roundabout near the British Airways hangars for landing shots for Runway 27R
