I'm under the southern turn for inbounds to 09 at Heathrow and since the Lockdown that has been the predominant direction they've been landing from.

We've had quite a few interesting movements.

26 March. LATAM Chile B787

One from Sunday.

PH-MPS
1990 Boeing 747-412 (BCF) from Miami to Schiphol (although FlightRadar said it was going to Stansted, which did seem rather unlikely when it was still at 35,000 feet over me in Bedford). First time I've ever seen a Martinair aircraft.

Hi Nighthawke, I live between Leicester and Loughborough so I’m lucky to be able to see a lot of movements from EMA including the AeroLogic’s!
