Good news for plane spotters in Nelson - the airport has created six viewing windows in the fence line, giving an unobstructed view for enthusiasts.

Dan Hay is one of Nelson's most active plane spotters, and he worked with Nelson airport in choosing the best locations to get a close up of the action on the runway.
