Going around at London Heathrow

Posted by on Feb 19, 2014 in Blog | Leave a comment

I recently had my first go-around on a commercial aircraft. Due to the pilots’ announcements on the PA before and during the flight I decided to film the last 2 minutes of our approach. This resulted in getting our go-around on video.

My take on the View Heathrow Observation Deck

Posted by on Feb 16, 2014 in Blog | Leave a comment

On 23 December 2013, Heathrow Airport opened the ViewHeathrow observation deck, which is located between gates 15 and 16 in Terminal 4. I knew about the existence of the observation deck via airliners.net, where the yourHeathrow team had posted a heads-up. I already had a flight booked from T4, so it was only a matter of time before I would experience this newly refurbished area. In this post, I will be writing my observations and thoughts about the facility.
