A fitting tribute to a fantastic lady and much missed members of the Abbotsford Flying Club. Blue Skies, Shirley Hubbard!

London’s Heathrow Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world, so it’s no surprise that if you look up in the sky during the morning rush, you’ll see a line of airplanes swarming around, patiently waiting to land on its runways. This video from TopFelya shows 30 minutes of morning arrivals and there’s a plane coming in every other minute.
I love how the planes seem to come from every direction in the background until they get in a nice little queue (we are across the pond, y’know) so that they can touch down in an orderly fashion. Handling air traffic control at Heathrow must be a never ending game of stress.
