I went to LHR for a spot of photography today (25th) and spent the early afternoon taking landing shots underneath 27R by the BA hangers. At 3:00pm the usual runway swap took place and I decided to call it a day, I headed for some refreshement at the McDonalds along the Bath Road, I left there at about 3:50pm and the runway's had changed back to 27R landing and 27L takeoff, it seemed a very odd change.

Does anyone know why the switch back, it must of happened between 3:30pm and 3:50pm. There must of been some sort of problem to all of sudden change again otherwise why bother switching at 3:00pm?

I was at LHR today also, mainly to photograph the Saudi 747SP (it arrived at 27R). It arrived at 1:45pm and was supposed to depart at 3:35pm.

As soon as the runways changed at 3:00pm, I caught a bus to the other side of the airport (09L) so I could maybe get the Saudi 747SP as it departed. However, as soon as I got to 09L, the runways suddenly changed (there were planes taking off from 27L), so I never got to see the departure of the Saudi 747SP. I was kind of teed off about it.

I wonder why?
