London Heathrow Airport Forum | LHR Spotting - Northern Perimeter
I've been spotting in Heathrow today in the morning and wanted to catch the MH A380. Therefore I went to the Northern Perimeter, as described as spot L in your spotting guide: http://http://www.plane-mad.com/airport-spotting-guides/united-kingdom/london-heathrow-lhr-egll.html
Unfortunately there was no possibility to take photos through the fence, as there was a metal board tagged to the fencing. Do you use a ladder or something to step up in order to take your photos?
I've never been anywhere else than Myrtle Avenue when spotting at Heathrow, so I was wondering if there are any other good positions?
Yes, I've seen the spotting guide and it helped a lot, but unfortunately I wasn't able to take any photos throught the fence...do you guys use ladders or something to get your lenses over the fencing. I'm kinda confused right now...
The key to fence shots is see something good, go up and take a pic then retreat back about 10 metres then do it again when another lands/takes off.
Yes, I've already experienced the Heathrow police a few times and also got checked by them. Ok, I'm gonna try your tactic the next time I'm spotting at Heathrow.
