LHR in the "lovely" British Afternoon [29/10/2017]

Postby Mitch » Thu Nov 02, 2017 6:30 am

Hey guys,

I took advantage of my travel partner leaving London a week earlier than I did and I had to drop her off at the airport, I trekked (and I mean trekked to a vantage point to get some photos of some planes coming in. Walking around Heathrow to any of their spotting points without a car is so hard.

Image
It started out as a great day as this Air India Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner registered VT-ANR takes off for Delhi.

Image
This British Airways owned Boeing 767-336ER takes off for Stockholm, Sweden. I got on an SAS flight to Sweden the next day.

Image
This EgyptAir Boeing 777-36NER departs London Heathrow for Cairo, operating as flight MS778.

Image
This brand new Lufthansa Airbus A320-271N takes off for Frankfurt. Lufthansa was the launch customer for the highly updated Airbus A320neo (new engine option).

Image
An Airbus A320-232 bearing the colours of the flag-carrier of Britain comes into land from Corfu.

Image
This Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner comes in from Shanghai in the afternoon.

Image
The embattled national carrier of Italy comes in from Rome.

Image
What is now a sister airline of British Airways, this Iberia coloured Airbus A320-214 comes into land from Madrid.

Image
A Boeing 737-7K2 of the national carrier of The Netherlands glides into land from Amsterdam.

Image
This aircraft is one I've wanted to photograph for a very long time, and to be able to catch this before they are retired fully really caught me by surprise. This Airbus A340-642 operated by Virgin Atlantic glides in from Lagos. The -600 series features more powerful engines and a longer fuselage than the aptly nicknamed "hairdryer" engines of the -200/-300 series.

Part 1.

Cheers,
Mitch :lol:

The national carrier of Korea comes in from it's very long flight from Incheon, Seoul.

The smallest airplane of the Airbus production line, and one we don't see in Australia is this tiny Airbus A318-111 operated by Air France arriving from Charles-de-Gaulle.

Image
An updated Airbus A320-232 operated by British Airways on final descent from it's short flight from Belfast.

Image
This one caught me by surprise as this aircraft was on my list as well. This Boeing 757-2G5 of Air Astana, the national carrier of Kazakhstan arrives from Astana.

Image
The Boeing 777 is definitely a marvellous aircraft, and this Pakistan International Airlines owned unit is no different.

Image
A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner of the royal airline of Britain ends it twelve hour flight from Tokyo.

Image
A new aircraft on the commercial market, a Bombardier CS100 makes it way into Heathrow from Geneva.

Image

As always: comments, questions and queries are alway welcome.

Cheers,
Mitch :lol:
