Final in the middle of the city! This airport is really in the middle of London. Note the high angle of the approach

Wow! Good Job! It's a beautiful view of downtown London! Here pilots can really put their knowledge to the test...the approach doesn't seem to be easy :)

My guess is he is travelling in a BAE 146 Avro which are well known for there steep approaches especially into airports like LCY :)

Good picture, if im not mistaked, I believe you are not allowed to descent below 1500ft on the QFE (AAL) until a certain distance, then it is a 5.5 degree descent, nearly twice the standard.

I like the perspective of the foto, in particular how one is able to get an idea of the position on the London City Airport relative to the Dome, Thames river and the rest of London
