Location: Terminal 5
So with summer coming to an end, I still hadn’t had a proper ‘spotting session’. So today when picking up a relative arriving in from Prague on a BA flight, I decided to take my camera along and do some spotting to kill time. I rarely go spotting, therefore the quality of my pictures will obviously be nowhere near some other forum users, however I decided to put a topic together to share the best shots. Enjoy!

Continuing with the gate theme, here is a BA A319-131 Registered G-EUPK loading up for a flight to Lyon, France.
EC-LZX an A330-300 of Iberia Airlines arriving into London Heathrow’s 09R after a flight from Madrid.
My first time seeing the Aer Lingus A321neo as it lands on 09R, still not a fan of the new EI colour scheme but hey
British Airways Boeing 777-236ER arriving in after a 6 hour flight from Abuja, Nigeria.
TAP Air Portugal A321neo landing on 09R after a flight from TAP’s main hub - Lisbon.
G-EUUG pushing back for a flight to Malaga with the last of the British holidaymakers for the summer.
Kenya Airways Boeing 787-8 arriving in from Nairobi. A route I used to do very frequently in IF.
Another BA shot, this time G-TTNI a two year old A320neo arriving in from Funchal.
Last but by no means least, my personal favourite. A Turkish Airlines Airbus A330-300 in the Tarihi Forma Livery - a real beauty! Peep Wembley Stadium’s arch in the background
As I said before, I very rarely go spotting. When I do it’s usually just to pass time when travelling in real life or like today when I was just at the airport waiting. But it sure was fun nonetheless! If you have any constructive criticism or tips to improve, I would appreciate if you let me know. Otherwise, thanks for checking out the topic and have a good day :)
