Re: Plane spotters

Problem with this is most of the plane spotters don't have cameras, or binoculars or anything of the sort as the planes are so close at Heathrow. And even when there they do have cameras, the spotters mostly stand in one place (end of Myrtle Avenue) and Heathrow is massive. No way they could see a drone at the other end of the airport. There may be one or two spotters in other locations, but again it's a massive airport.

Having said that there might be one or two security cameras at Heathrow that are perfectly placed to get a view of said drone....
