Hi guys, I will go to London next week and want to catch some nice birds.
Can you give me any advice, where the best places at theses two airports are?
And at LHR, what is the most common landing direction?

Quoting ajd1992 (Reply 1): At Heathrow you can bet that they'll be landing on the 27's. They swap runways at 3PM though, so it's not just one for takeoff and one for landing.
Remember, there not doing that at the moment, constant 27L landing (cant recall until when)
Most of today they have been on 9L landings, 9R takeoff.
Quoting ajd1992 (Reply 1): You can head down to a place called Caines Lane, but it's a pain to get to without a car. Great spot just before 27L, and if you can get to Hatton Cross tube station, it's just up the road.
Cains Lane is only 5 min walk from Myrtle Ave lol.
