Theres not really a great deal of places to go if you only have 5 hours...
It's not worth going into London in that time, and in order to do any spotting you need to get a car and no stopping is allowed on the roads around the airport.
You could possibly get a taxi to the Heathrow Visitor Centre which has good views over runway 27R/09L, and get a bit of info on the airport! It is a few miles from the terminal and unsure about public transport.

Was wondering which terminal will you be at?
The visitor centre is a great idea as you have views of the runway and lots of information on heathrow..
easily gettable by a free bus from inside the airport..
