Eastbound from US-UK is pretty jag lag free if you take the early daylight flights out of NYC/BOS/ORD getting into LHR the same evening.

TBL tugs do not require a man onboard to cover the brakes, as there is no bar/shear pin to break, Andy the aircraft nose gear is actually off the ground.

Similarly ... Any T4 operators using the A380 must also cross 09R at Sierra 5 when depts on said runway.
