Mad dash to get the retro Gulf Air B789 @ LHR!!!

Post by jonf45 » Mon Feb 10, 2020 9:51 pm

Hi,
so after 12 hour nights and 2 hours sleep, 7 hours round trip on trains, tube, bus and foot, i managed to get about 90 minutes of spotting in at London Heathrow on Saturday!!
When i woke up, i noticed the Gulf Air "retro" jet was on the afternoon arrival( i missed it all last summer!), and with the prediction of a sunny afternoon, i raced to get down there.... was glad i did!!
