Heathrow Sat 09-10-04

Wed Oct 06, 2004 3:53 am

Hello everyone,

My name is Anthony Osborne and this is my first post on the airliners.net forums. I have been an avid reader for ages and wanted to get involved in the action. I have just 200 photos on the database at the moment, and working on as many more as work permits.

I wondered if any kind soul might be able to tell if there are any interesting movements expected for Heathrow this Saturday as I am planning a trip down there with a friend - assuming the weather plays ball!

Regards,

Anthony

Hey Tony

First let me welcome you to A.net and hope you have a great time.

As for any 'special' aircraft on Saturday, unfortunately nothing comes to mind besides BA A319s Big grin

Anyway, if you move this thread to the non-aviation forum, you might find others who'd be interested in making a mini-meet on Saturday giving you the chance to meet other A.nutters. Personally I might be LHR on Saturday (not sure yet though).

Hi Antony,

Great to see you registered. I might be up either Saturday or Sunday depending on what I feel like.

I'd like to see some interesting stuff! What are the runways looking like for this weekend anyone?

Cheers,

I hope the weather and wind direction hold for Saturday. I'm heading out of T4 in the morning so could get some nice rotation shots from 9R.

Well after a nail-biting week, of will the weather hold or will it not - we going to bite the bullet and go, and see if our luck holds, the 154 is due in at 10am I think and I am looking forward to the prospect of three JALs.

Thanks to everyone who replied and made me feel welcome,

Regards,

Anthony

Most of my info comes from two of my relatives who have asked me not to reveal their names and as such i will do as they have asked!

I am not a member of the origonal Heathrow yahoo group so none of my info comes from their although i am a member of Heathrow2 but that is only a small yahoo group and dosent provide me with any info that i use on here.

All the JAL INFO comes from the JAL cargo site.

www.cargo.jal.co.jp/FLT_DSPe.htm

But if its to much for me to keep my relatives names private then i will have to stop posting what little info i get and keep it to my self!
