airkas1 wrote:So today was interesting.. I ended up at LHR after all and almost felt like home with Schiphol-esque runway usage.
I arrived around 10:15 and the 09's were in use. I went to the location at 09L (thanks for the help with that in the above posts!). Around 11:45 I decided to check out Feltham park, what a great place that is! 400mm was more than enough and I think I got some pretty decent photos there. Lots of shade and a cool breeze blowing over the park.
At 14:45 I went to the Esso at the Southern Perimeter Road, only to realize that it was 13:45 when looking on the dashboard of the car... At that moment, a BA Airbus came overhead on final for 27L. So quickly changed plan and went to Myrtle until 15:00. All the good stuff subsequently arrived on 27R and there wasn't a good place to park the car GRRRR. Ended up at the Esso after all, but by now there were some clouds. Called it a day at 15:30 and by that time, some BA Airbii were holding for runway 09R... Never seen this many runway switches at LHR, but I guess the wind was exactly cross then (although I think it did pick up as the day progressed).
At least I now know my way around the airport better. If anyone is around tomorrow, come and say hi!

All my photos taken at LHR can be found via this link: http://www.airliners.net/search?country ... splay=card
I still have more material, but I'm waiting for those lousy gray winter days to work on my backlog.

And many thanks for your reply, I'm certainly able to work with all your info. I looked up the 09L location and I see what you mean. Not many places you can really park a car without being next to the road. I'll keep my fingers crossed it will be the 27's for the days that I'm there haha. Too bad that the double fence made the 27R touchdown spot is now useless. Never been there before, but judging the photos it was an awesome spot with the right light.
