LHR Road Crossing

Fri Apr 08, 2005 7:00 pm

Can someone please tell me if the public perimeter road section that crosses the taxiway near the Virgin/bmi hangars is still open, or is the new route now open avoiding the crossing?

Ok, thanks for the very speedy reply!

It's taking a while to sort the new route out then, I'm not complaining though...

Interesting topic, especially since I'll be visiting LHR again on May 14th - 15th. Wouldn't mind seeing Wunala crossing the road Big grin

At the mo. the big red machine tends to do the mid-day outbound flight, rather than hang about. I think it was in today?

Now those are great shots from Wunala. Want to bet it won't be at LHR however when I'm there? All great liveries just tend to stay away from LHR whenever I'm there. However, with that kind of attitude, if one actually dóes show up, nothing but a big party Big grin
