Seriously, I'm meeting up with a friend from Manchester, another from the London area, and a third from the USA. No doubt we'll be lurking around the photo vantage points for at least part of the day before retiring to the Ren's bar - we're all staying over for the Collectables / Enthusiasts fair at the Visitor Centre on Sunday.

Hi guys,

As 707cmf already pointed out, I'll be heading for LHR this Saturday as well!

I'll arrive at T4 from BRU around 8h00 (flight BA0389) and am planning to stay until 18h00 since flight BA0404 departs at 19h35.

Anyway we can make some arrangements to meet each other (under the approach path / at a fixed time at the Visitors Center e.g. / ...). Guess most of us will just head for the approach path, right?

If the weather is aweful, I'll probably head for the Visitors Center, from where I will probably go to downtown London or so, I'll see...

Anyway, I've just checked the weather forecast and it looks promising people: sunny the whole day, not too warm (17° C) and a nice strong northerly wind --> Expect some serious crosswind landings people Big grin
