Hi guys,

I'm a bit irritated at the moment, I get home today to find out that 'oh we've booked into the Thistle Hotel at Heathrow before we leave to Iceland', the principle being that I can take photographs from the hotel.

I quickly asked them why didn't they ask me first, because I never said I wanted to that. You know, my parents make an effort but whats the point if they don't think first. Is it any good for photography? I assume it isn't because i've never heard anything about it but I can always hope Big grin.

Plus the fact I was thinking of selling my camera anyway, this just makes me annoyed more than anything else. They lectured me about how much money they'd spent just for me, etc etc.

ArGH, someone give me some good news please  Smile

Thanks Ben, so according to this map, its right at the end of 27R. Thats not very good unless 09L is in use instead for touchdowns, and that is assuming that you can see over to the runway.

Either that or hope there are some aircraft with horrendously long takeoff rolls on 27R.

Dan,

If I were you, I'd just look forward to a fantastic trip to Iceland, regardless of what's on offer at LHR.

It's not as though you'll never have the chance to go back to Heathrow in the future.

Regards,

Paul.

Hi Paul,

Yes, to be honest I wasn't bothered about LHR in the first place, which is why I was so surprised that he'd booked us into a hotel because we didn't need one in the first place as the flight is in the afternoon. I hope the holiday is going to be excellent and I can't wait!

Cheers

Dan

Well Dan,

As has been said concentrate on Iceland and not Heathrow just get your self down to the 27R approach  Smile

When are you away? Enjoy it

July 15th I think, until July 24th.

I guess I should've bought a tripod, there must be something I can take a picture of at night at LHR... whaaaa.
