Heathrow afternoon arrivals 07-03-2018

Post by andygolfer » Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:00 pm

3 hours at the dead centre of Hatton yesterday afternoon after dropping a friend off for a flight to Hong Kong. got there just after the runway change at 3pm and stayed untli 6pm-ish (evenings are pulling out nicely now), got a few new ones for my collection and had some nice light as the sun went down.

Here's a selection....
Malaysian's 3rd A.350, they are now using 350s on both daily flights so no more A.380s at least for a while.

You were right about the light Andy, very nice :thumb: I do like those A350's, much better looking than A330

Lovely light and a good selection of A350s there. Funny you got the Eurowings Holidays A320 after missing at Stansted on Saturday - we certainly didn't catch it in sunshine!

As already said - nice to see some shots with that warm glow from a setting sun.

thanks Jon, me too -I'm back at the end of the month to pick her up, that's after the clocks go back so with an evening arrival I should have a good day if the weather plays ball.

Cracking set Andy! Haven't been there for some time but noticing these and other pictures that it's changed a bit. Shame that Malaysian A350 was the more basic scheme one!

Seems to be quite a few specials ending up on Heathrow turns too! I take it the LOT 737 MAX is pretty solid then, you have a shot of one before me!

Those evening shots are just stunning! :clap: :clap:
