Are the police, and the owners of the petrol station on the south side of the airfield, ok with photographing departures from 27L? Also, which bus is best to get which stops close by?

Also, how far in advance is 09 arrivals and departures known? The previous thread had a post saying "this coming weekend is 09's"

Thanks  Smile

09 Arrival and Departures depend on it being an Easterly wind that is blowing.

Only as far advanced as an accurate weather forecast!  scratchchin 

They seem to have been on 09s a fair bit in the last few weeks, but it looks as though we're set for a run on 27s now.

The Esso station is between T5 and the LHR Cargo, both 482 and 490 have a stop at Heathrow Cargo Area, from here you have to walk 3/4 mile towards T5 to reach the station (these buses are free between T5 and Hatton Cross).

Eveything is usually ok unless you block access to the station.

It's a 10-15 minute walk from the Cargo Centre but it is worthwhile, I've never had any problems shooting from there in the last six years!

The owners of the petrol station often complain to police, which results in photogs being moved. That happens more at weekends than during the week. Occationaly, complaints are prempted by asking people to go, usually if the numbers are getting high. It's still within the airport, and therefore subject to the restrictions on remiaing there.

whats the score with taking 27R line up shots now ... still ok to do so through the fence....

reason for asking its been a year since i was last down there and last time was ok ... but on the 27L line ups kept getting moved ( cops and BAA security ) to the next fence back in the middle of the permieter road and main road.

cheers

It depends on many things.

The BAA's attitude is that plane spotters are not wanted. They get a number of calls per day about photogs/spotters, and always pass them to Police.

Once that happens unless you fall into one of the 3 catagorys for being on the airport, which spotting isn't one of, usually you'll be asked to move. If you arn't, sure as eggs are eggs, Police will get called back again within 30 minutes.

Obviously Police have the powers to ask you to go anyway, irrespective of the BAA calling them or not. It then depends on the Police Officer, some will always move on, others will ask you to disappear to somewhere less obvious. However, the number of photogs/spotters who take the micky soon make the second of those 2 groups of officers change to always applying number one option.

Unfortunatly not all who spot and take photos are paragans of vertue, irrespective of what some may think, and at the end of the day, it's private property and you have no right to be there.
