Infrared Heathrow experiment

Warning, these could be marmite images!

I had a potentially daft idea yesterday evening, why not try my recently purchased colour IR converted E-450 at LHR. Nice sunny evening produced these.






(I dont think the angles are quite right on the BA 777)








I would be really interested to get all of your views on them. Be cruel if you want as I really would value your opinions. I have to admit I like them but you all might be screaming NO

I will process a couple more

Cheers

Chris

Re: Infrared Heathrow experiment

Thanks for the comments, interesting. Now I have confused myself!

Dow we prefer the slightly coloured shot of the A380 or the black and white converted one?











In any case. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

Cheers

Chris

Re: Infrared Heathrow experiment

I get to see so many pictures throughout the year, I really appreciate something done differently.

What are the best vantage points for images like these? I ask because, I may well be doing a lot of waiting around at LHR over the next few weeks.

Re: Infrared Heathrow experiment

Dear Graham,

There is a very good guide to br found here:

http://www.plane-mad.com/airport-spo...-lhr-egll.html

Now for my 2 cents!

Its all to do with the wind! If thw wind is blowing from the east, it is easy they will be landing on 09L all day as O9L is favoured to keep the locals happy regarding noise for aircraft taking off. 09R is always used for takeoff as clearly the BAA are not so concerned about the residents of Feltham and Hounslow!

If the wind is from the west 27L and 27R will be used during the day for landings. Aircraft will switch from one of the 27 runway at 3pm. Again to keep the nearby residents happy. I personally like it when they are landing on 27L as the spot near Hatton Cross tube station Myrtle Ave is excellent.

Just one word of warning, if you are up very early in the morning both 27 runways are used for landing at the same time to clear the backlog of early arrivals. That guarantees that the aircraft you really want to see will land on the other one to where you are standing!

Please ask if you would like to be confused further!

Chris

Replied earlier but post has not come up. I really like the first two shots would have liked more of the wings in No.1 but you maybe took these on the fly?..............

Definitely the b&w shot of the A380. It really shines!
