AI 772 At LHR 8/1/2005?

Sat Jan 08, 2005 7:01 am

Hey guys,

I have heard that AI's new 772 will be at LHR tomorrow. I have been informed it will arrive at 5:30-6pm time, is this true?

Can anyone confirm what time it is due in? I would love to see it and i am praying for it to come in in the light!

Any help would be awesome!

http://www.airindia.com has a flight arrival and departures link. Look for AI 161.

Chris,

It left BOM at around 1310 hrs. I reckon, it should reach LHR on schedule.

cheers,

Hey Guys

I'll be there watching her come into land, winds ar currently out of the West so they'll be using 27L or 27R. Best place to see her therefore will be probably Hatton Cross Tube station!

Its showing arrival at 1734

Hey guys & gals

So did anyone of you see her?? I was at about 1.5 DME and she looked pretty sweet from where i was standing.
Tracked her all the way from Director with my airband scanner.

One thing though, once at the gate they were requested to keep the doors closed until the police arrived, anyone know why??
