1st July 2015 - A day trip to Heathrow

A trip south to London Heathrow on the hottest day of the year (temperatures reaching 36C!) saw a few nice subjects finally being caught by my camera.

The following were my highlights of our time there.












With nothing much of interest showing for the late afternoon we made our way home via Luton allowing us to catch the departure of the La Compagnie 757-200 F-HCIE.



A great day out with many nice photos and another 64 numbers added to the log book!
