Wed Nov 02, 2011 10:05 am

I've seen a few late rotaions recently, but none as late as this BA lump yesterday.

When the old Virgin A340-300's flew out to LAX on the 23 flight in the afternoon i saw some complete horrors! Literally looking like they were going to scrape the blast fence.

That's certainly up there, Phil, although some of the Sri Lankan rotations I have seen have been very late indeed.

It was going to PHX (happy to be corrected). I've seen similar, it is pretty hair raising.

Its a nice 20 minute walk south and east of Terminal 5, probably a lot longer if you walked from Myrtle Avenue.
