Hi Chis.... Was New York good  Big thumbs up

Well im the export airfreight manager for a company at Heathrow....
Im in charge for the export airfreight section. If you need to get something abroad from a small box to a Car we are the ones who sort it out. We book/arrange documents/and do pretty much everything apart from load it on the plane. Biggest shipment so far was 49 tons to Karachi. Pretty much filled their flights for 4 days Big grin

So if you ever see the TP385 London-Oporto flight think of me as it will always have my cargo on it !!  Smile

Not a bad job. A bit stressful at times but made a bit better seeing as my desk sits under the flightpath for 27L. Picture taken while sitting at my desk below  Smile
