Hey,

I will be in London with 3 friends on january 21st and 22nd, we're arriving at 7:30a on the 21st and leaving at 3p on the 23d, so we're planning to go shoot at LHR at 12 on the 21st, a whole day on the 22nd and maybe early in the morning of the 23rd.

If anyone is interested in metting up with us post a reply here.

Thanks,
Youri

Hi there,

I'll be there with Youri on this short trip. As we will be there on the weekend we thought it would be the occasion to meet some of you guys, hanging around some famous spots while enjoying our hobby.

I hope to catch some of you there for sure.

Cheers!

Alex

May well be at LHR next Saturday (provided it isn't awful weather - however it's CURRENTLY looking ok with high pressure predicted to build in!). Feel free to contact me via my profile if you want to arrange to meet up

Hey,

We're off to London tonight, routing YUL-YYZ-LHR (76P / 333).

We'll be spotting for almost the entire day on friday and the entire day on saturday. As far as we know it should be sunny for the weekend so hopefully we'll see some of you guys hanging around.

I'll be wearing a red jacket, maybe a black cap and Youri (crank) will be wearing a white and blue jacket. Most of the time we should be 4 of us, starring at BA 319s.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

So that's about it. We can't wait to be up there and taking pictures at LHR. Should be a lot of fun, and we really hope to catch some of you near the edges of the runways. We'll on our side look for some locals!

Cheers!

Alex, off to EGLL

Weather looks good outside right now - in Luton anyway. Was hoping to hit up LHR either today or tomorrow, but today I am so sore from toting my bags from train to train yesterday. Will see what happens tomorrow.


Yay Pudding!

I know it's weird but the low pressure coming from the west could either hold or move quicker over tonight.

Live from the Renaissance now...

We should be out there all day long tomorrow. We got some good pictures today but the clouds came in fast after some nice blue skies.

Hope to see some of you around!

Looks like the winds may switch to coming from the east tomorrow so 09R will be used for takeoffs.

I was going to come today, but weather didn't look too good, made other plans and now its sunny, typical! So I'm coming tomorrow (Sunday) now instead.

It looks like from the weather forecast that they'll be using the 09's? But later on in the day it looks like the wind is set to change a bit, so if they swap over and use the 27's how am I supposed to get up there? I would walk but lol its a little far....does that H30 bus from the Heathrow Bus Station, round the back of the 09's to Hatton Cross still run?

Mike.

Well the weather wasn't too bad today, at least it didn't rain!

Rather amusingly just as we were leaving for home I spotted Crank and AGD standing at the Mytle Ave field. I convinced Glenn to turn around so we could go say hello.

Luckily I got it right and it was the Canadians, Crank in the blue jacket and AGD in the Red one just like they said they would be in this thread, good stuff.

Sadly I didn't count on these two guys being French Canadian, lets just say our initial conversation was a little bit difficult but anyway, good seeing you lot!

Oh and nice to see you as well Simon and Dave,  Big grin Ta for the pics of me landing!
