Arrivals At LHR Tonight

Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:35 pm

Jogging round Battersea Park just after seven this evening and heard unmistakable A310 noise - looked up and couldnt name the airline. Looked weirdly like RAM but they dont have any A310s do they?

Landed just before a Sri Lankan A332.

Also talking of A332s - any reason why only the Airbus heavies (VS A346s normally but tonight a CA A332 and the aforementioned UL A332) came out of Lambourne hold with everything hanging out and gear down already over Battersea?

Never see 777s, 747s 767s etc do it. Any reason why?
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

I think that gear can be lowered early to help slow the plane down if Air Traffic Control give some tight speed restrictions
