There's a photo in my photostream taken from the emergency exit gates if that's the place you're on about.

Cheers! Was on the 353 the other day but only to Kingston Park - will have to see if I can get there then, although it'd be easier on the 44 as it's straight from Haymarket plus a regular frequency.

That's a brilliant shot! Hopefully I'd achieve something similar, probably the place you're on about but I'd get the pics of the planes landing.

I have to be honest, I wouldn't mind a small trip up to the airport on the Metro.

The Metro trip is quite good and I would recommend making your return on the X77/X78 (bus stop on main road behind Tulip Hotel) the bus is a lot quicker between the City Centre and Airport.
 My favouite journey to the Airport is the Go North East 74A on a Sunday.
I think this is the best place to put this...

It's a good ride, very quiet but I love the southbound journey from Airport going down the bank from Callerton Parkway haha.
Talking of getting the Metro to the Airport.. Me, Bazza and Dan went on a proper 'metty mish' a few weeks back!

We went up to the Airport from Gateshead and it was a really pleasant journey from Kingston Park onwards when all of the chavs got off. I think we ended up going to Haymarket, Gateshead, Heworth etc on the Metro that day also.

And Dan will remember Bazza's conversation to someone on the phone regarding his hatred of Seagulls and Pigeons  Tongue .

Loved going on the old observation deck! It would be where the current security checks are, where the door was - that took you onto the outdoor roof space, which is probably duty free now.
Except that because there were very few planes then, you were basically looking at the Dan Air parked up for half an hour until you got bored.

I would love to see this go ahead ! I do hope the can get the funds together. I really miss the observation area at Newcastle. Even parking down at the Dinnington side of the runway isn't as good any more, as the hedges have been allowed to grow tall.

The viewing park down at Manchester Airport is great, we try to have a weekend or 2 each year down there so that I can visit the Viewing Park.... and Manchester is much busier!

You had me totally baffled there like. Didn't have a clue you had posted it elsewhere or what this even meant. Just read your post about the route being cancelled, in the airport expansions thread.
