Ian will now get the rare opportunity to go airside with Heathrow staff and take pictures from the tarmac, while Tim gets the chance to meet the NATS team in the control tower.

Almost 2,000 people voted during the competition via our blog and the yourHeathrow website.

Thanks to everyone who entered, all of whom were participants during Heathrow’s first plane-spotters day held on 3 September. The quality of all the photos was incredibly high.

If you’ve got a great aviation photo you want to share, we’d love to see them.

Good spot, Tim! More haste, less speed required I think!
