Boeing 777-200LR Due @ LHR Thursday 11/10

Wed Nov 09, 2005 5:01 am

I just found out from the Yahoo LHR newsgroup that the Boeing 777-200LR is due into LHR this Thursday (Nov. 10).

This is a proving flight, 22hrs nonstop HKG-LHR via Pacific & Atlantic.

I don't know the exact time, but it's due sometime at LHR Thursday. Hopefully I, or someone else, will find out before then what time it's due in.

If I can, I'll be out there to catch it on film!

Watched CNN interviewing Richard Quest onboard this flight, 35 pax n crew and he was quite tired. No wonder, this ULR takes 24-25 hours...

Also nice to note that this flight will be piloted, from HKG, by a female, namely Captain Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann.

It finally arrived! N6066Z landed on 27L at 1312 local time.

I was there to see it land--what a beauty! I had my camera with me, and I fired off 5 shots in rapid succession as it approached 27L.

Was anyone else from A.net there today?

I was on the ramp at T2 as it landed, she is soooooo quiet, well done to Boeing and the crew.
Look forward to seeing the photos SmithAir747.
When in doubt give it a clout

Response to Pogo:

As soon as I get my photos of N6066Z developed, I will post them on this thread for you all to see, as well as to MyAviation.net. Keep an eye open! (I have just a few frames left to shoot on my roll).

Finally! Here are my photos from last week of the Boeing 777-200LR, N6066Z, at LHR. All photos are from Myaviation.net.

1) Nov. 10, 2005: N6066Z approaches LHR runway 27L on an overcast afternoon, so the plane seems to emerge like a ghost from a white sky.
