Aircraft Viewing Facilities

Aircraft viewing facilities were provided at Heathrow Airport from the Queen's Building on the roof of terminal 2. This over looks one of the runways where photos are possible with anything more than a 200mm lens. Terminal 2 & 4 were visible. However, this was closed in 2003 on the advice of the Government and BAA have no plans to re-open it.

Heathrow Academy (formerly the Heathrow Visitor Centre)

The Heathrow Academy on Bath Road (formerly the Visitor Centre) opened in Easter 2007. As well as providing a new staff induction / training centre and conferencing facilities, the Academy includes an exhibition aimed at local schools, detailing some of the highlights of Heathrow past and present, and speculating on the future of the airport and aviation.

The Academy will continue to be accessible to local families at the weekend and in school holidays, for both education and leisure purposes. The centre also includes a coffee shop and a grandstand for aviation enthusiasts will be constructed later in 2007.
