    Aircraft

    Couldn't find a current thread for pictures of aircraft, so I thought I'd start one. Here are some of my efforts from Heathrow Airport last week

    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.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    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.
