First Time Spotting @EGLL

EGLL Spotting

Today it was my frist time spotting, I went to EGLL because my sister live 5-10 mins away from it which is very convenient.
If I do not write a description under some aircrafts it is because I cannot identify them on the picture.
If you want to use any of these photos, feel free to do so :)
I use a canon EOS 6 D

Great photos. Especially for a first time! Look forward to seeing more of yours in the future. Especially if you ever get to go to Hong Kong airport when your back home.

Beautiful A380 shots. I bet the sound from those beasts were awesome.


Great pictures. Love the diversity of Airlines

I was very surprised about this, the A380 made less noise than the 777s that passed over.


I tried to mix it up a little because BA seemed to pop up the most because EGLL is BA’s hub so I posted a mix of different airlines.

Some of these photos look pretty backlit. Try and avoid that. Also trying editing your photos with Lightroom or something. Otherwise, great variety of aircraft!

Nice, just a heads up, those a320’s you shot with the winglets, are not neo’s, just bog standard a320s. Cracking shots though well done.


Thank you! yeah sorry I could not identify those

That’s alright, I’ve made that mistake loads of times, spotting at various airports.

Also if any of you want to do some spotting at EGLL, you can choose from 2 spots depending on which runway is active.
The first place is Myrtle Avenue, there is a small green park there next to the airport.
You can also park in the Heathrow terminal 5 long term parking. The first 2 hours are free of charge.
This parking is right under one of the runways making it extremely convenient.
