Does anyone have experience of using Terminal 5 at Heathrow? What is it like from the point of view of an enthusiast who likes to take photos from the departure area? All the official website goes on about are the usual transport links and boring things like shopping. I would rather spot than shop.

Landslide is not so brilliant, airside there's some pretty decent views of the aircraft on stand. I use it weekly.

What Agent K says is spot on.

On 'landside' when you enter Departures from the car drop off point, turn left towards the coffee bar you get some reasonable shots. But the best is on 'Airside' where you get some really good views of some of the 'stands'.
