Taking a ride on this question, where is the spotting point for this photo in the same airport?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ricardo

The EL AL shot was taken through the fence from the perimeter road next to 27R. Unfortunately this spot is no longer any good for photos as this whole section has been double fenced and signs have been put up saying you have to stay 3 metres back from the fence. This is why you won't see any shots taken from this point over the last couple of years.

I wasn't aware of the location of the BA 747 shot however. I suspect you are not allowed to approach the fence here either and if spotted by police or security, would be moved on pretty quickly. Getting ground shots at Heathrow is pretty difficult now but there are still plenty of options for shots of aircraft departing or arriving depending on wind direction and runway usage.

Thank you Richard. In fact I remember to have read something about a spotting place like that was no longer available, and I did not note (my fault) that the series of pictures taken there was from 2015.
