Hi all, went to London Heathrow to catch the SQ A380 on its second day of ops, sadly the sun didn't play the game all the time but had a nice couple of hours anyway. I hope you like the shots:

 

One for the Indain boys to start with

Phil, the sun over here is also playing hide and seek with us at times. :rolleyes:

 

First time for me seeing Clickair. :good:

 

Some real close up shots you have.

My favourite is the AA front shot. Nice reflection on the fuselage. :good:

Long time not trying 27L lining up. Looks like my spot is still OK :D

Any vip planes for sharing?

Hey guys, sorry for no reply, I have been away for a few days, sadly not spotting though, so here are a few replies in one. Here is a nice contrasty photo of a BA B757 for TK

Pieter C this spot is quite close to Hatton Cross train station, you just walk out of the exit with the bus station in front of you and take a left along the main road and you will find the spot easily, if you like drop me a PM and maybe we can meet up?Only if the weather is nice though :rolleyes:

 

Walter Sim, yes heathrow is not too bad for being spotter friendly by UK standards as long as you don't do anything crazy!!! I use a 75-300 lens and this is fine.

 

I hope this is ok guys, by the way I am going to start a thread for LHR movements soon, like the AMS one so watch this space for hopefully some nice photos and nice movements............ :drinks:

Phil, nice stuff mate!

 

I think its about time BMI updated A320 G-MIDX...apart from the fact its faded to buggery, Varig is no longer a member, and the other week was the 6th anniversary of the MURDER of Ansett

Thanks mate. Sure, I think these A320 are going though, G-MIDU was ferried to SEN for re-spray into Spannair colours. Such a shame about Ansett R.I.P. :cray:

Air New Zealand and the Australian Transport minister at the time (his wife was on QF bird) certainly did no favours! They not only murdered Ansett, but they killed my life long dream (I was 14 at the time) to fly for Ansett as a career. And to think many thought Jetstar was an overnight idea, any coincidence between Lindsay Fox pulling out of the Ansett deal and Jetstar picking Avalon just a couple of years later??? Anyhoo, thats another story, not worth entering into...

Hi Guys, due to popular demand and the fact that I like showing my photos off :pardon: I have decided to do a kind of blogg for Heathrow movements that I have captured over the past six months that have been of interest to me and hopfuly you guys, this will be on-going so check back for up-dates. I have of course missed a lot of goodies and a lot have arrived or departed in bad weather so I didn't get them, anyways I hope you like the pics and if you want to see anything in particular let me know, enjoy and thanks for looking :drinks:
