Trip report

Traditionally day two of our trip brings us to the busiest airfield of England, London Heathrow. Because runway 27R was in use, we went to a spot next to the maintenance hanger on a small commercial area. An ideal spot, out of sight of passing traffic and right next to the aircraft on final.

Three o clock sharp runways are changed at Heathrow, so we had to move to 27L. When this runway is in use walk towards Hatton Cross station and follow the Great Southwest Road (A30) to the southeast. A field next to the road near a residential area is a great spot for some low approach landing shots.
