Re: towed

The BA T4 maintenance hangers are "across the road" from the airfield. They have a level crossing thingie which stops the cars and opens up the taxi way for the planes. I was inside the road barriers as she crossed so got some good pics. Could almost have reached up and touched her wing :) *sigh*

Was it in a no parking zone?

Any traffic warden doing that would have been lynched! Although ... if keeping her in a pound woukd have kept her flying ... we might have done it :)

Peace

The white zone is for loading and unloading only.

... and the yellow hatched area is where you stand to take pictures ... unoficially at least. There were about 20 people there taking pics and the airport security people seemed OK with us staying there as long as we kept clear of the plane.

On the road but on the aircraft side of the barriers where we shouldn't have been officially.
