I will probably go to LHR to watch the triple Concorde landings in the afternoon. Anybody? http://www.concordesst.com is reporting arrangements for the North runway to be in use. But which direction? Hopefully 27R.

I hope as many of you as possible go, the police are stupid for trying to stop people watching a moment of history.

Well, I'm not too sure if I'll attend, with all these rumours about the police etc. etc.

Paulianer/Rotate: Any chance that I could call you on your mobiles on the 24th, say at lunchtime to find out what the actual situation is on that day?

Not sure that the Police are telling people not to go - simply advising that traffic will be horrendous and advising people to stay away if they don't want to be stuck in it. However, this is a big event and nobody will get any hassle from the Police - this isn't the USA after all (only joking before you start on me)!

Well I'm going to defend the Police.
Anyone seen the truly insane 'driving' of people looking to see a Concorde? Stopping dead on the busy roads, blocking entrances, bus stops, I've seen all this in a matter of a few minutes.
What about all the cars parked out on busy roads that have and lot of bus and HGV traffic, I surprised that there has not been a bad accident already.
Then security, imagine what a job they have securing one of the UK's most obvious targets which happens to be a very busy airport as well.
And some people by trespassing makes it all worse.
What about pax who have to get on a flight (which is what LHR is for, it's not an airshow), what about the 1000's who have to get into work there.
If you must go, use public transport.
Co-operate with what LHR and the police tell you to do.
otherwise you'll spoil it for everyone.

I will be there, and I will be using public transport because I know the roads will be horrendous. The 09's are being used at the moment Sad, yesterday was a nice change when they used the 27's, I hope they will use the 27's for Friday.

I must agree in part with what GDB said-I was under the 09L approach and then at Hatton Cross on Saturday evening and the apalling behaviour and stupidity of a minority of people almost spoiled it for everyone. the police were tolerant as much as possible but it is no wonder they are being paranoid about Friday if last weekend was anything to go by.

Double parking on a dual carriageway

Parking on the central reservation (median strip)

Stopping dead in the single lane road from T4 to Hatton Cross

Parking in front of emergency access gates

and that is just some of the stuff that was going on......

for those of you driving

The road that is opposite the access to LHR at the eastern end Holiday Inn on the corner, has no restriction parking along it.
ALSO the holiday Inn allows 2HRS FREE parking..... the bad news is then its a tenner, but the good news is that that the BA base s a 10 min walk


25 PlaneMad : I'm going on the tube to Hatton Cross and then will walk. I'm just worried Concorde will switch runways at the last minute. That has happened to me be
26 Trintocan : So 27R it will be then? Well I can anticipate the masssive crowds that will be there for the event. The best advice is - go early and get a good spot
27 IwantaBBJ : So, any experiencies from today? What's the situation like now? MTIA Michael Steffen
28 Vc10 : Well just heard on the 6PM news here in the UK that people are already starting to camp out around Heathrow in preparation for tomorrows flights. Whil
29 Rducky : GOOD LUCK TO THOSE WHO MAKE IT TO THIS TRULY HISTORICAL EVENT, JUST BE SAFE AND TAKE SOME GREAT PICTURES. ROBERT (AKA RDUCKY)
30 Qantas744 : I just got back from LHR, G-BOAG gave us a wonderful noisy take off to JFK that was breathtaking to watch. Unfortunately once again people were puttin
