Actually, it was on the airport perimeter I believe not the actual
airport. In the UK there is no law which stops a photographer taking
pictures of a civilian airport if the photographer does so from public
land/highway (or from within their own private property).

In the mid- 70s cockpit doors were usually shut. The one exception I
remember was flying Concord. I was permitted to stand at the entrance, with
the door open. I could not take any pictures, not because of regulations,
but because I had no film in my camera.
