Just wondering if anyone knows what is happening to viewing area at Birmingham airport, popped down there last week to find a temporary area behind two fences, it was bad enough to get photos as it was. hope they aren't removing it it was still good for taxing and takeoff photos
The area to which you refer has been 'sacrificed' in order to make way for the new runway extension. The Country Park at the opposite end of the runway is now the only decent viewing/photo spot left at BHX
That is a shame, but looks like they are thinking of putting it back once the extension is completed, thanks for the information
Quoting Saxaboom, from a previous post

Sadly, it would appear that the area in question will NOT be reinstated, as it is required for the construction of a new taxiway that will run parallel with the runway extension.
