    Thanks Anthony, I was at the very end of the Long Stay 1 carpark, it brings you right to the threshold of runway 33/end of runway 15 so you can either get them departing runway 15 and exiting runway 15 and taxiing to the Terminals or taxiing to/waiting to line up on 33 and landing/taking off runway 33.

    As I don't drive yet I'm not too sure of what the charges are to park in there at any given time, yes there is a fence with what can only be described as long plastic strips passing between all the holes in the fence which in effect makes photography impossible unless you are tall enough to be over the fence!

    Anyway some people have removed alot of the strips and at the very end have actually pulled the fencing down a little! to create a hole big enough for any lens to fit through and that's what I was using on my last visit although a step-ladder may be in order next time as it's kind of awquard using a DSLR through it but I got the results above, any camera that's smaller should be fine.

    Or you could just bring a step-ladder and avoid the above!

          Nice pics! I was on that Emirates A330, seat 11A just obscured by the wing!

          Back tonight on the evening arrival from DXB - suspect you won't be there again though!
