MiGMan's notes

  • Take off from Heathrow Airport in MSFS 2002 in London (there is another Heathrow in the USA) and fly EAST - heading 090 degrees.

  • Follow the Thames River and there is plenty to see!

  • The Millenium Dome looks spectacular at dawn or dusk - apparently it's on the wrong side of the river though.

  • There are a few bridges to fly under.

  • On the left you'll see an elaborate dockyard with cranes and shipping.

  • When you reach the mouth of the Thames Estuary climb to 10,000 feet and check out the complex waterways.

  • Turn back to the West, heading 270 degrees

  • Follow the river

  • A few miles past the Millenium Dome and you're back at Heathrow! Flight over!

These snaps were taken in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 over London. Check out Heathrow Airport in MSFS 2002.
