Re: Heathrow Airport video thread

Great find Ray, it's an amazing piece of footage. I was surprised at how few an far between larger types were in the footage. Most aircraft appeared to be of the narrow bodied types.

Great footage Hassaan13 thank you for sharing it with us. I love the noise of the aircraft on the climb out. What was your filming location?

Thanks Aviador.

It was filmed from the grass area at the end of Myrtle Avenue, it's a popular spot for photographers.

A British Airways A 320 flight from Budapest attempting to land at LHR yesterday during Storm Doris had a remarkable escape from what looks like a severe case of wind shear. It looked for all the world that it was going to plunge nose-first into the runway but the crew reacted instantly to recover control.

The relevant action starts from around 1 min 30 seconds into the video which may take a few seconds to get going.

The above link won't lead to the video in the normal way. It's necessary to block and copy the URL. The video which is on a Facebook page (no need to be a FB member to view it - I'm not) really is worth a look.

Fascinating glimpse at LHR in 1964 in one of Rank's Look At Life series - you have to be really ancient to remember those at the cinema.

The full colour video shows LHR under huge development with motorway links, hotels, multi-storey car parks etc being built. There are also shots of the aircraft of the time: VC10, Boeing 707, Trident and so on.

In 1964 when the film was shot the narrator tells us that Heathrow was handling 8 million passengers a year soon to be 10 million. Towards the end of the film there are some shots of Gatwick, then handling over a million passengers a year and expected to increase to 2.5 million in 1970 and thereafter to 5 million.

Even then, we are told, Heathrow and Gatwick won't be able to cope with all London's air traffic in the 1970s, so we are given a peek at Stansted which will become London's third airport.

What they would have thought then at the prospect of Heathrow handling 75 million a year and Gatwick 40 million, heaven knows.

It's a good quality look back at Heathrow half a century ago.
