Needed to find a way to head to Russel Square Gardens in London today.

You can imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this!

That's an LHR arrival.

For an LHR departure over Bagshot Surrey, see:

There are quite a few of these on Google Earth/Maps there is a famous one of an An-124 in the cruise over a chinese desert near Lop Nor nuke testing site but I can't find it right now.
