Questions About LHR Tomorrow (23rd)

Sat Aug 22, 2009 3:41 pm

Hi all,

Planning a trip to LHR tomorrow (Sunday) but the wind looks borderline - if it's a direct southerly will they use 27s as I was looking forward to much of the day on Mrytle? I don't mind the field at the end of 09L but I've shot plenty from there recently and I personally think they're a little too high. Are there any alternative spots for 09L and if so does anyone have any example shots?

Additionally, if any of you 'Row guys wanna meet (Mr. Broad?) with some of us from 'up norf' please let me know.

A nervous, wind-direction-watching Karl Nixon

For 09L try the bank in the field behind.

Chhers Spence. What day is the change-over? Will they be landing over Mrytle after 15:00 every day this week, and if so until when?

Planning a trip in the next week or so but want them on Mrytle as it's been a long time since I shot from there.

Ta,

Karl

Hi Karl, the change over is tomorrow, ie. they'll be landing 27L before 1500, then 27R thereafter. This, of course, if westerlies are the ops of the day.
