Heathrow Arrivals

Welcome, today we turn the clock back to 1973 and a trip to Heathrow. It's going to be a squeeze as we are in the nearly rally prepared MK1 Ford Cortina Estate, so you will have to fit yourselves in between the full harness seat belt anchors and the 51/2J spare wheel as its too wide to fit the carrier underneath. So grab your Zenith B's and we will make the tortuous journey round Uxbridge and Slough, although there is a rumour that the Government will make all our lives wonderful in 15 years time by building something called an M25, but the views from the Queens Building will make it all worthwhile.

We start with a view from the top of the Terminal 3 Car Park of VC10's on the BOAC stands.

Now to the roof of the Queens Building and the panoramic view of the Terminal 1 parking area and the Aer Lingus Boeing 737-200 EI-ASG.

Rushing back to the terminal 3 car park we find BOAC Boeing 707-436 G-APFC.

Another BOAC Boeing 707-436 G-APFI and note the magnificent line up of BEA Merchantmen outside the Cargo Centre in the background.

Back to the Queens Building for the arrival of Cambrian BAC 1-11series 400 G-AVOE.

And finally today we see BEA Trident 3 G-AWZG.

And so as the nearly rally prepared MK1 Ford Cortina Estate disappears in a cloud of dust and blue smoke in the direction of Slough, we say goodbye to Roger and Reggie till the next time.
