Let's see...there'll be some BA ATPs, RJ100s and ERJ145s...well you didn't say to exclude those types
Forgot to look at Ceefax before....BWIA isn't listed on the MAN pages! If it comes in, it should depart at 10.15.
Depending what time you get here, there might be 2 VLM Fk50s in, 2 PK 747s, the usual long-haul stuff (about from the Emirates which arrives at 12.15), Aurigny Sf340, City Air ERJ145, an Air Atlanta 747 that will be doing a service in its own right (!), Sunair J41 & a Spanair A320. There'll be at least 1 EAF 747 in (ETA 05.00) and at least 1 Titan 146 (though this depends what is planned) and ATR42.
Of course, next week you'll miss the scheduled appearance EK 777s from Thursday to Monday..more to the point, I'll only see them at the weekend!

Alex, I daren't venture south as my last LHR visit was in 1984 and I've never been to LGW! I work on the principle that all airlines will eventually turn up here (though I have the amazing tendency to miss all the really exotic stuff...e.g I'm going to miss the Air Cameroon Cargo 757 which will be going to FLS hangar early Monday and out early Tuesday).

Dipping my head into a crystal ball.....
You'll miss out, unfortunately, on the EK as a 772 is expected on the 20th at 12.20, departing 14.00.
Sunday is definitely 9Y-TECH day! Goodish news is that a Virgin Express 737 is timetabled to arrive at 9.00 and departing at 10.00. Helios should be sending a 738 in at 10.05 - you might see that landing whilst at the holding point! Couple of PK 747s, the EAF 747 arrives at 10.20.

Ok, Im back from TFS
Flew G-TDTW both ways, but have to say arriving back at MAN T1, the place looked like a dump, and it was an hour before we got our bags back >
Anyway, highlights of my departure day from MAN were:
SQ 744 (Taking less distance to take off than anything else)
EAF 742 (Red and Pink)
BMI 332 x 2
MYT 332 x 2
VLM 2 x F50 (One with 20 pax, the other with about 15 pax I seen getting on )
Missed the JMC 753s, but caught up with JMAA and JMAB in TFS
Anyway, I'll write a trip report sometime today or tomorrow
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
