viewing aircraft!

Hi there, I would like to know where you can watch planes safely without breaking the law or interfering with the airport security and police?

I have found 1 or 2 places. 1 is on the footbridge 117 over the railway line just to the north of the airport between Horley and Gatwick. 2 is also on a bridge 120 by the perimeter road (A23). On the footpath between Charlwood and Ifield Hall by the approach lights. Lastly another up on the hill by Russ Hill Hotel near Ifield Windmill. I hope this helps people!?

Living in the South Terminal

An unemployed chef managed to live in Gatwick's South Terminal for almost four years before he was finally arrested:

Fond memories

Gatwick was the first airport I ever landed at outside of North America. It was my first time flying overseas, and we flew Wardair (a Canadian airline, sadly no longer in business). I remember the excitement of seeing the green fields of England after the long trans-Atlantic flight. When the plane landed, I started to clap, and all of the passengers joined me in spontaneous applause.

Almost 20 years ago, I remember the access to the tube to get into London was good, as was access to the south, where we were headed.
