Re: Heathrow Runway 23 in Use

Great shot Andy :thumb: I've only ever seen them using 23 at LHR once and that was in about 1988, it was being used for a couple of arrivals but was closed after a cargo DC-8 (I can't remember which operator) landed and blew 3 or 4 tyres. I was on the Queen's Buildings and the noise was like gunshot...

Re: April 2021 Movements

Might be slack at the moment Mike, but at least a few nice ones in among your visitors, most airports are in the same boat, LPL is the same, mainly the odd biz jet, but tonight Wizz have three flights. When we stayed in Cullen a few years back, we paid Inverness a few visits and always got at least...

April 2021 movements

Slightly busier this month with the return of a few easyJet flights f&t Bristol, Loganair have re-started their service t&f Belfast (I haven't included any Loganair in the report) but there are many daily schedules that have yet to return. Based Coast Guard AW189s during April were G-MCGM & G-MCGN 0...

Yes - very much still active, they're just not as fast as us at approving new members!

I'm sure they'll get round to you in a day or two. :)

Hi, I am new to the group, do you know if the new viewing deck is open still or opening soon? Thanks
I shouldn't think so as it's inside a hotel and they are still closed due to COVID-19.

The serial that I have for the Tu134 seems to be wrong (CCCP-45876). I have a code of 'F' for one of the Super Frelo...

Re: vertical stabilizer

Can someone tell me how many kg of downforce is produced by the horizontal stabilizer of an airplane (e.g. a320, b737, b747, a380)? At normal speeds or landings, any info is good. Or where can I look for these, maybe there is a table somewhere? Hi LH44, I've moved your query into this section as th...

March 2021 movements

I moved up here almost 40 years ago and this is easily the quietest month that I've seen for visitors and scheduled flights in all that time. No easyJet, British Airways or KLM schedules at all and very few Loganair flights, there have been no scheduled flights to anywhere South apart from the night...

Wonderful shots as always Stephen, they look like they were taken from the western end of car park 2 - I could be hopelessly wrong though! :unsure:
