Heathrow Spotting - Perimeter Buses?

Mon Apr 20, 2009 4:41 pm

i am hoping to be at heathrow this saturday and am wondering if there is a particluar bus that travels the perimeter so i can hop on and off.

it looks like the 482, 490 and 555 will get me round most of the airport.

please advise as i assume that 3pm at mrytle park is still the main spot.

thanks

if they are taking off to the east then i would assume it is on 09R after 3pm therefore being situated near the petrol station on the south perimeter and aircraft banking shots would be ok??

No sir. If 09's are in use, then the departing runway will be 09R. There is no 3pm change with easterlies. The Esso garage will give great views of the traffic lining up and beginning their roll, but photography is hopeless due to the fences. If you want the departure shots, your best bet is to catch a bus to Tesco at Duke's Green.
