Just to save me having to look it all up, does anyone know off the top of their head when the 10L/10R designator for LHR's westerly runways was dropped in favour of 09L/09R ?

Thanks.

The alteration was made during 1989.

We must be psychic - ten minutes ago I asked the very same question to the Air-Britain forum.

Many thanks to G-CIVP also

That's quite bizarre. Must be the Twilight Zone...

Bizarre or not, but I've got corrected info on this from Tony Wheeler, Air Britain's Commercial Scene Editor.

He states that the change took place from 00.01 2 July 1987. I tend to trust him bearing in mind his position and he's also quoted the last aircraft he saw on 28 - an Air Atlantique DC-6 (G-SIXC) at 20.12 that night.
