5.0 out of 5 stars Heathrow Airport Manual - Designing, building and operating the world's busiest international airport., 1 July 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heathrow Airport Manual: Designing, building and operating the world's busiest international airport (Haynes Manual) (Airfield Operations Manual) (Hardcover)
Oh I love this book. From the age of 11 until I was 16 I spent every day of my school holidays on Queen's Building plane spotting. Unusual for a girl!! And even now I am a pensioner I still have the love of commercial aircraft and airports. Living near Gatwick I can watch the planes in my garden but this book have brought back some very happy memories apart from showing me what has been going on at Heathrow in the last 20 years.

I used to live in east Sussex for most of my lilfe. So my first car journeys after I passed my driving test in 1971 was weekly visits to Gatwick, with my trusty Zenith 35m camera. In those days, you could walk along the fingers above the concourses to watch passengers disembark below and enter the corridors, always admired the British Caledonia Air stewardesses uniforms, and they, if you were lucky get a wave from them. In those days a drive to Heathrow from east Sussex coast was a long arduous journey, with no M23 then, and only parts of the M25 was in operation. But still I went up into the then, free and open Queens buildings with lots of shops and aviation store.It was the only time I saw Air France & British Airways Concorde's in service. Sadly near the eighties, the government started getting jittery over the IRA, and promptly started closing down both Gatwick and sadly the Queens buildings terraces was curtailed so much, that I stopped going as wasnt worth the journey. However I now live in the N West, within an hours drive of EGCC manchester airport which has its own Runway viewing park. I started going there, when Concorde G-BOAC was put on show, and in later years, was put into a purpose made huge hanger costing a lorra money. This is one of the best viewing parks left in UK, Airbus 380's pass by you on taxi ways to the terminals at around 200 meters away, great photography and my scanner works overtime ont the tower frequency of 118.20 :) I fly Bombadiers , King Airs and 373's and Airbus A320, from EGCC on Flight Sim X... I watched the recent live documentary on Heathrows working day some months ago, was very interesting, but wouldn't like to be an ATC !!! far to little gap between aircraft, and it only needs malfunctions or tired controller to lose control. I have always maintained that Heathrow is a disaster waiting to happen. may very well get this book very soon
