Does anyone know of a website that can tell me which runways are currently in use at LHR? I appreciate the swapping over at 1500 hours of the 27's etc, but I would like to be able to look up which runways are currently in use for arrivals/departures, ie. the 9's or the 27's, and then use this info with this site ...

Quoting Ianatstn (Reply 3): With winds 340deg @ 3knts, does this suggest that the 27's will be in use at present? Is there any easier way to get runway information, or is this the best way of doing it?
That is the best way unfortunatly. As I said before, join the LHR Yahh group, you get lots of upto date information on runways / movements ect.

Okay, my application hasn't been processed yet, so I am still left pondering which runways will be in use. I am planning a trip to LHR tomorrow (29th) and it would be preferable if the 27's were in use. Would it be possible for someone in the LHR area to post which runways are in use in the morning to help aid my decision?
At present the winds look Northerly/ North easterly, which still means the 27's could be in use due to noise preferences (I believe they will use the 27's even with a tailwind factor of less than 5knts).
