Throughout the working day, a constant stream of airliners queue to land or depart from Europe's premier airport. Airliners from every continent of the world are regular visitors, transporting passengers to London or other European cities in Heathrow's Continental hinterland.
Over sixty million passengers pass through the airport's facilities every year and in a clear evening sky you can often count back through eight sets of landing lights making their final approach over London's beautiful skyline.
