Er suprisingly you might be right Steve there is an airshow thread. Either way they are nice shots. What took you to Heathrow just observing or off on hols? I was really fortunate to actually fly on the Emirates A380 recently its amaizing inside - best flight I've ever been on with service to match.
Hi Phill, thanks for your comments. I just fancied a day watching them all come in (in very quick succession), and was very pleased to catch the A380 - I would love to fly on one someday.
I'm registered on http://forums.airshows.co.uk/ and I'd heard a lot about a cul-de-sac called Myrtle Avenue, a great place for spotting, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not a real anorak who records all the aircraft types / numbers etc., I'm just interested from a photography point of view really - something different to point my camera at :)
It looks like a great spotting spot if I can put it that way. I bet the locals get fed up with observers though.
