  • London Heathrow - 25th July

    Hello Everyone... MaltaAirSpotters are coming to town!

    We will be spending a day in the glorious English shade shooting every airliner coming in!

    Will anyone else be there?

      Could make it in the evening after work, but by that time I reckon you'll have shot ever BA and BMI 319 at least twice plus what time are you leaving?

              Wish I could come, but alas, work and the bank manager say no! I would also love to shoot some more endless BA 75's, 319's and stuff! When you rarely get anything bigger than a 146, anything else is exotic.

                  Its a possibility for me, but I will leave around 1400 as I have work at 1700 and its a hour and a bit drive round the busiest motorway in England for me.

                    Thanks guys!

                    Hello everyone!

                    We'll be a group of 6 to 8 people.. 27L and 27R seem to be the scheduled runways for the day... we'll be on the field at the treshold!

                    Malta is a fairly good spot for spotting, but we barely get any widebodies (except An-124s!!! )

                    BA only flies in 320s and 321s, so anything is welcome!

                            Weather permitting I'll be there from about 0830. I'll try to get your KM flight inbound.

                              Thanks Everyone!!!!

                              Thanks everyone for your responses!

                              So we have a JPnetter shooting our plane on arrival (should be on the jumpseat myself), another JPnetter landing his 757 on our heads, and many other JPnetters to keep us company!

                              I'm taking 2GB worth of cards and my laptop to offload photos... I guess it should be sufficient!

                              Hope the weather will be OK!!! We'll try to bring the Maltese sun with us...
