A few weeks ago I went to meet my son from London Airport or LHR as we know it, I went up on the Rail Air bus because I could not be bothered with waiting around in traffic. I took some photos with my phone while I was on the Bus.
This is the coach you take, I used to travel on it a lot when I was working and going out on installations in different countries. It was never as luxurious as these though
I was hoping to get this plane head on as it was coming over the M25 to land but this was as good as I could get, the coach was a little too quick
As you go around the roundabout before the tunnel you see this plane, when I used to go on a regular basis it was Concorde (I miss that) then another airline bought the advertising space now this one
On the way out I took this one of a globe but I forget the airline
Then it's back past the plane on the roundabout again. It was interesting to see how the place has changed from when I was a kid because I remember going there when I was around 10 with the school and we could go on the roof of the Queens building that had just opened. Times have changed.
Hello, great photos of your trip to the airport. I like the second shot of the plane. I have only flown into Gatwick. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend ahead.ReplyDelete
It could have been better. Gatwick is not a good airport to get to with having to negotiate the M25Delete
Beautiful blue skies!ReplyDelete
They were that dayDelete
Interesting tour. You are true blogger always looking for photos to share.ReplyDelete
That is meDelete
Pretty shots. I like that big globe. Seems like TWA used to have a logo like that back in the day.ReplyDelete
You might have hit the nail on the head thereDelete
These are terrific takes!ReplyDelete

Thank you though I di dnnot have any water in mineDelete
Yes, I remember going there to some kind of observation deck where you could watch the planes taking off and landing. Not so frequently in those days either.ReplyDelete
Seems we both remember the same thing, Think I have a few photos from back then stillDelete
They certainly have! I miss those easier days. I also miss the Concord. I always had a dream that I'd fly on it one day.ReplyDelete
Hate to brag but I did fly on itDelete
That is a nice shot of the plane in the air! I have flown into Heathrow once before and I believe we came in through the Queen's Terminal right after it opened. In a couple of months, I will be landing at Heathrow again, this time with two of my grandchildren!ReplyDelete
That UAE plane is quite striking with its wildlife painting! Makes perfect sense to me to take the bus instead id driving... I just wish we had better public transportation!ReplyDelete
