    London-Heathrow 21-07-2015

    So, let us continue with a full day of photography at Heathrow. In total I captured about 182 aircraft. Here's a small selection of the day.

    My day started at about 6.00 in the morning with a look out of the window of my hotelroom.

    1. American Airlines B777-300ER N724AN arriving in the morning sun. I spotted many American Airlines' birds; 3x A330-300, 5x B777-300ER and 4x B777-200ER.

    2. Air Canada is also an airline which can be spotted often throughout the day. Here's B777-300ER C-FITU on approach for runway 27R:

    3. Heathrow is also an airport with lots of A380-activity. Next to, ofcourse, BA, Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, Thai, Malaysia and Qantas all operate the aircraft into LHR. Here's VH-OQJ:
    A388-QFA-VHOQJ-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    After breakfast, I moved over to the Hatton Cross pedestrian footbridge, where I just missed the Thai A380... Bummer.

    4. Definitely one of the best looking aircraft in American Airlines' livery is the A330-300, like this N275AY:

    5. Another nice A330-300, Virgin Atlantic G-VRAY:

    6. Catch 'm while you can; the A320's of Virgin are on their way out. Here's EI-EZV on finals for runway 27L:
    A320-VIR-EIEZV-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    7. Not the best shot ever, but still very cool livery on this Etihad A380 A6-APA:

    As the sun was getting in the way, I moved over to Myrtle Avenue to continue spotting. Arriving there, my small lense died. Not good! So some of the widebodies were photographed in a not so good position... :evil: But, I think I managed to make the most of it!

    8. Heathrow is also the place to be for Dreamliners. Here's B787-8 N29606 of United arriving:

    9. Air India came with this Star Alliance-livery B787-8 VT-ANU:

    10. The B787-9 is definitely more sexy than the -8. The Virgin-colors help too!

    11. Turkish Airlines made sure I catched my first B777-300ER of the airline...

    12. Rather crappy shot of this overflying AW-139, but I don't have that many Dubai Air Wing-aircraft. This is the DU-142:

    13. Regular liveried B787-8 VT-ANB of Air India:

    14. MEA A320 with rather exotic registration T7-MRB:

    15. Also nice to catch Transaero B737-800 EI-RUB:

    16. VQ-BCU is my first photographed A330-300 of Aeroflot:
    A333-AFL-VQBCU-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    17. I hope Etihad will repaint some of their A340-600s into the new livery, but I think not...

    18. Qatar WhaleJet A7-APA:

    19. Only 5 days old was this Air Algerie B737-800 7T-VKK:
    B738-ALG-7TVKK-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    At 15.00 the runway changes and 27R became the main landing runway. So, time to move back to the hotelroom...

    20. My first Kuwait B777-200ER arriving:

    25. A Dreamliner was scheduled, but this B777-200LR showed up! ET-ANN of Ethiopian on finals for 27R:
    B772-ETH-ETANN-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    26. Two Jet Airways B777-300ERs could also be photographed, like this VT-JEM:
    B773-JET-VTJEM-LHR21jul15 by Anton Homma, on Flickr

    Impressive set Anton! I know at some point I'll make it out to LHR, and I can only dream of capturing that many jets in a day!
