Lurch - I thought you had given up spotting. Oh yeah, stop pinching all your information off the LHR mailing list and passing it off as your own!

I was just out at LHR today (and yesterday as well).

Yesterday's weather was the most beautiful, and sunniest, for spotting. I shot most of my photos from 12-3pm at 27R (landings) and from 3pm-4:30pm at 27L (Myrtle Avenue landings). I just got the pictures back today. One oddity was an EgyptAir A320 (quite a change from the usual 772s); another was a PIA 742 along with the usual 743s. Also an El Al 772. But yesterday was mostly BAs and Airbus narrowbodies (not worth my film, which I like to use for more interesting widebodies, like 747s, 747SPs, etc. and more interesting airline liveries).

Today, the sky was patchy--mostly cloudy with some sun. I stayed at Myrtle Avenue for landings from 12-3pm and got a few shots in. But I caught one rarity--Air Canada's new blue livery on an A343. Has anyone else seen AC's new livery at LHR yet? This was my first ever sighting. Today I just missed getting a photo of Iran Air's 742 and a VS 744 (Ruby Tuesday). But I got some other beauties--El Al 744. But mostly BA aircraft and Airbus narrowbodies (neither worth wasting film on!).

I do not have access to that list as I am not a member of the LHR list how many times do I have to tell you this are you rearly this thick!

I gave up civil spotting it dosent mean I have given up my interest in civil aviation! Who are you to JUDGE ME GET a life/

I have you obviously haven't as you are harassing me as and when you see fit!

Such personal attacks on me will make you look even more ignorant than you are.

I am not a member of the LHR list SO I do not get information from that list is that CLEAR!

Should be:
I do not have access to that list as I am not a member of the LHR list how many times do I have to tell you this OR are you REALLY this thick!

Takes one to no one  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Sounds like a usual Heathrow Monday!

I'd say it was quite good, a NetJets BBJ, AC NC 343 (2nd time of seeing it), SAS Star Alliance 738, ANA Pokemon 744, few other biz/helis...EI-DEA if i remember rightly too...it was fun but the weather got worse!

The weather looked really promising today. It was very patchy down here at SOU, and then got downright grumpy!



Cheers

Hey,

SmithAir, I was at Mrtlye avenue at the same time as you, I also saw the Air Canada A340 land, But did not get a pic  Sad, Never mind though, It looked dark Silver all over, It was not the light. I also saw Ruby Tuesday  Smile.

Response to European:

To me, the AC A343 actually looked light blue. I hope my photo turns out as I saw the plane!
