In trip reports there is a earlier T5 trials one. You might want to have a look at that one. I know it included multiple hours testing the security and passport check procedure  Wink

Don't have time getting the link to the TR right now.

Each trial is different, as BAA and BA will be testing all systems and processes to be used in T5. some trials are basic trials, testing either small aspects or systems, while other trials will be advanced trials involving tests of all systems and processes at the same time, to replicate a fully functioning terminal.

I'm also on one of the trials this coming week (18th October), would be cool to know what we'll be doing prior but at the same time I guess it's part of the excitement if its unknown.

I got an email update from BAA just the other day with revised timings, instead of 0830-1200 it is now a longer day with revised timings as 0830-1500 and states that the trial will involve a lot of walking, climbing stairs and standing around for long periods.

You will find a detailed description here LHR Terminal 5 Trials - Trip Report (by BCAL Sep 27 2007 in Trip Reports)  alert  Warning! May contain spoilers

But half the fun is not knowing what profile you will be given on the day.

As said above each trial is different. I was a guinea pig selected to go through the security checks several times, which meant taking your shoes off at least 6 times. You might be luckier and have something more exciting.

Times are a bit of a con. We were told originally it was from 09:00 to 12:00 midday, and then 09:00 until 15:00, both with registration from 08:00. We were finished by 13:00, so there was a long wait for my lift home but managed to squeeze some plane spotting and photography at Hatton Cross.

Do not try and take any photographs when inside T5. They will ask you to leave if you break this rule.

There was supposed to be a free shuttle bus from Hatton Cross to Heathrow Academy between 08:00 and 08:45, but I never found it so had to take a cab.  blush 

At the end they take you from T5 back to Heathrow Academy and the bus continues on to Hatton Cross Bus/Underground station.
