LHR is simply the best...At any other airport you would be glad to get one of them below! Three special liveries visible in this shot! Can also you find QF's "Wunala Dreaming"? ;) Shot taken during take off on Rwy 27R back to Dusseldorf.

Nice pic! I give it four stars only because of the wing visible in the upper right-hand corner. Try to trim that out next time, and your picture will be perfect!

"Wunala Dreaming" is at the top left corner of this great shot. Lots of Virgins also down there. T.B.

What a great shot! In any other European airport you will not find an UL 340, MK 340, AI 772, NH 744, KE 744, 9W 330, JL 772, MH 744, various VS 340, QF 744 (in the top left of the photo) at same time.

Great photo but no Wunala Dreaming. That is, or was layed up at AVV. Unless I am completely mistaken that carrier is not QF.

Sorreeee! You are right! I was looking at the Malaysia at the end of the finger. That is certainly QF but I cannot make out the markings.

This shot is just marvelous. The quality of it is very high and it shows particularly well Heathrow airport being busy, as usual. I like seeing the aircraft parked at their gate or being towed like the JAL 777 and the ANA 747, or taking off like BA’s 777, or taking to runway…. My favorite plane remains the Boeing 747-400 of Malaysia Airlines.

Delta never flew to Heathrow back in 2007 along with Northwest,Continental and US Airways i think they all started flying to Heathrow under the new open skies agreement on May 1st 2008. Excellent Shot.

Excellent photograph. An excellent mixture of aircraft showing not just various carriers but also various phases of operation.
@ Second Visitor (from US): Cropping without wings would've taken Wunala Dreaming out. Would've diminished the quality of shot.
