G-CIVI 747 LHR - Bournemouth Today

Parking must be getting tight at LHR. She just flew over at 5000ft, there were almost ripples in my G&T!

I was wondering why I could hear a 747 from home just now ... Quite near the approach path into BOH airport.

May be off the wall but Id say a pilot!

remember not all pilots are on strike - viz the non union ones or a manager who is also a qualified pilot.

Either management pilots or those who belong to the other pilot union at BA

And as already said, not all pilots are in the (any) union and so are not on strike.
