Morning rush hour at EGLL

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.

Basic Flying Rules

1. Try to stay in the middle of the air.

2. Do not go near the edges of it.

3. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there.
