Heathrow Webcam Live
« on: December 10, 2008, 05:03:06 AM »
A little off-topic but a very interesting website:
http://www.heathrowcam.net

Live webcam of Heathrow runway 27R arrivals.
Interesting to check against flights shown on RadarBox. :-)

You have to refresh by clicking on the small link at the top where it says "Latest". Just do that every couple of minutes and a screenshot will appear of the latest aircraft to land.
Warning!!! Airnav RadarBox is extremely addictive!

It was alright this morning but now it's gone all weird. Half the images are not showing and there is no screenshot of the latest aircraft landing.

UPDATE..

It's up and running again now. I've just been getting to know this person who set up the webcam by reading his posts on the "Live ATC" website.

Too unreliable in my opinion. It's down again. Worked for a little while this morning though.

Hello, I ran out of space on the shared server recently and have been working on freeing up some space.  Approx 32000 hi-res photos have taken it over 6GB. The site has been really reliable all year up until the recent issue simpy due to space. It's fully automated... I just have to tweak the camera settings occasionaly (sun/cloud etc) and have figured out how to do this remotely now.

This week a/c have been on 27L so I've been housekeeping and not had the camera live. Site will be up and running on 27R from Monday morning. The weather report is looking ok so should get some good shots especially the Emirates A380.

Check out some of the shots from the summer by clicking the last link and then prev link. The Singapore A380 is there.

I will improve the control links especially the "Latest" link as it's caught a few people out!

Enjoy the site and feedback really appreciated.

All the best

The Heathrow Cam is up and running this morning as runway 27L is in use :-)

Don't forget the 5 minute delay if you are watching aircraft on RB via the Network - aircraft showing on the cam are about 15 miles finals on RB (180 kts = 3 miles per minute, 5 x 3 = 15, so that's about right).

UAE1 A380 is in the Lambourne hold now at FL90.

I'm hoping to catch it on the Webcam :-)
