Photographer's Note

When you are visiting London and walking near the Tower Bridge and the river Thames, you can often see aircraft at relatively low altitude heading for the big airport "London Heathrow". If you have ever thought what the view from the other side of the aircraft windows would be like: just look at the picture for the answer.

The view from an airplane approaching Heathrow on a clear day can be amazing. You can see a lot of the touristic highlights of London. On the picture are visible the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge, the modern city hall (architect Norman Foster), the navy ship (and museum) HMS Belfast, Millennium Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral. A few seconds later we were looking at the Millennium Wheel, Houses of Parliament (and Big Ben) and Buckingham Palace.

I can give you the following tip. If you are going on a flight to London Heathrow: be sure to get a window seat on the right hand side of the aircraft!

P.S. Apologies for the blurry areas on the picture. Unfortunately, windows of aircraft that are completely clean and without scratches are hard to find!
