London Heathrow Airport Forum | Time of day
Im going to heathrow next thursday, and was just wondering if anybody could tell me which the best two hours are to take photos of heavies arriving. Also, is there a possibility of seeing a DC-10 or MD-11?
Thanks in advance (:
Doubt very much youll see a DC-10, as Biman were the last operator to LHR with it, but now even they have stopped.
Id say 9am-13:00 is best time to go, as you see the A380's or SQ/EK/QF, and quite a lot of heavy action.
You will have to put up with the continual onslaught of BA/EI/BD Airbii though, no matter what time of day you go. I suppose every silver lining has a cloud lol
Luftie used to be the main Tri-holer at EMA, but of course they are at MAN now.
STN is best for the fedex MD11's
it is a little park like area, with some seats and public access. Good for gear-up shots.
