At around 10 am on Wednesday 13th July, The new Colombian presidential plane, a 737-700 BBJ should leave Madrid and fly to London, transporting the president who will meet Tony Blair.
My questions is, will it land at LHR, or is there any chance that it will go to RAF Northholt?

My guess is that it will land at LHR, most presidential and VIP planes land at Heathrow, there is always a VIP plane at LHR every week. And considering the Colombians will most likely meet Blair at Downing Street, LHR makes sense. RAF Northolt is only a few miles less in distance to central London than LHR.


In Arsene we trust!!

I was waiting for a post about this. I cant wait to see a photo!

I was hoping he would come to Berlin where I could probably meet him since I work 1 block away from the Colombian mission and take fotos at Tegel!

Hi TACA, in fact his inaugural flight was to SJO, but not on his way to Europe... After SJO he came back to BOG and then two days (?) later he went to MAD and LHR.
