Heathrow Ground Timelapse (EGLL)

Hello! This time I’m back with a ground timelapse, since I had a really fun session controlling everyone around on the ground, and it makes for a really mesmerizing video. London was featured both on Saturday and Sunday, and I decided to hop on right in the morning for America, which means traffic! I had a really fun time collaborating with the whole EGLL team, we worked splendidly together to provide an amazing service to expert. My team consisted of, @ShaneAviation (Ground), @SamC (Tower), @TRDubh (North Approach), @Alejandro_Castaneda (South Approach), and @Sashaz55 (Center). When deciding to take ground, I had remembered @Trio’s post, which can be found here, about how ground should take ATIS, and boy, he was right. With how busy Heathrow was, ground had the least of worries with all of the controller changes and directions with approaches, it really makes the most sense if ground has it, thanks for the tip @Trio! Overall, thanks to everyone that came out and to everyone that helped while controlling, enjoy the video!


Yessss! I see myself in this video!

Amazing timelapse!

During all of these timelapse videos, I always want to see myself but I never do. Nonetheless, great video!

Yeah, with all the changing of approaches and circumstances overall, it was much better that ground had control of it since I wasn’t working on a detailed plan and managing 50+ aircraft in a particular way that requires constant attention.

Thanks Sam! We should control together some time soon again. ;)

Thank you very much! I’m sure you’ll get in there some time, I love making these videos and don’t plan on stopping as long as I’m in IFATC! :)


I see myself landing 27L at 0:55, Speedbird 2591 👀

Definitely is beautiful timelapse, one of the most satisfying and best I’ve seen yet, so much activity! Keep the amazing timelapses up Shane! Ground with the airport maps is so satisfying 😍
