London Heathrow 1970's

Welcome, today we have a mixed bag taken at Heathrow. So if you prefer 1972 you can go in the Hillman Minx or if you prefer 1974 you can go in the vaguely rally prepared Mini so lets be away round the lanes to point the Zenith B at some aircraft.

Taken from the terminal one car park is T.A.P. Boeing 727 CS-TBM

A typical summer day in 1972 on terminal three car park finds Iran Air Boeing 727 EP-IRC having work done on the port thrust reverser.

A better day in 1973 on the terminal 3 car park gives the opportunity to get 2 B.O.A.C. VC10's in one shot,   with G-ASGL in the foreground.

Back to 1972 on the Queens Building we find Swissair DC9 HB-IFY pushing back.

Still 1972 on the Queens Building THY DC9 TC-JAE is being refuelled.

Another T.A.P.  Boeing 727 CS-TBP pushing back from the Queens Building in 1972.

So as the car disappears into the sunset we say goodbye to Roger and Reggie till next time.
