Heathrow Runway 23

Sun Feb 03, 2002 10:36 pm

Hi there,

Given that LHR has been using their 3rd runway - Runway 23 (around 6,500ft) to land on on Friday, has anyone posted any pictures? Due to the strong winds that have been hitting the UK, the rarely used runway saw quite a lot of activity. They were using 23 to land on, and 27R to take off from.

Cheers

Have there been lots of go arounds/hard landings etc during the storms recently?
See my homepage for a comprehensive guide to spotting and photography at HKG

Yes there has been some go arounds and very hard landings, the winds we had here in the UK over the past few days have been very powerful indeed.
In Arsene we trust!!
