London Heathrow 28-12-17 (08:00-13:30)

A forecast for clear, crisp, weather prompted a trip to Heathrow. With runway 27R in use, the car was parked at the Renaissance Hotel with viewing undertaken a 20 minute walk away by the BAW Maintenance base,  adjacent to the perimeter road. Despite the cold, there were many spotters dotted around various locations. I opted to stand on a splitter island in the middle of the road with some other photographers, with various wanderings to other spots. Departing traffic can also be seen in the distance on climb out from 27L, and with FR24 these can be easily tied-up.

The locations described above are adjacent to the busy perimeter road and are in full public view, but despite this the security and Police take a relaxed approach so long as everyone is sensible and isn’t too close to the perimeter fence. The only issue is when tall vehicle pass, such as double decker buses, which temporarily obscure the view of landing aircraft – which seems to be always when something good is on approach!
