shuttle train is very good especially if you are attending a concert/show at the NEC door to door service.
Also a very good indoor viewing area at BHX is available for the aircraft spotter... Indoor is ideal considering the amount of rain Birmingham gets bounce

I have taken off and arrived at (BHX) 2 times and have always departed and arrived at gate 1 ...a mystery.
