I've been following (my percieved) flight paths in & out of Heathrow, but can't find any planes in the air.
Looking at the massive line of aircraft waiting to take off, I expected to easily find one. Can anyone find one and tell me the coordinance of a plane in the air around Heathrow?

I think they are just too hard to spot. It's a busy time at heathrow judging from the imagery.

Check the LHR arrival routes perhaps that gives a clue where to look.

It looks like RWY 09L was in use for landing at the time the sat. image was taken.

Not around Heathrow but a classic:

52' 20' 10.87N 0' 11' 43.34W

Because of the paintscheme you'll need to zoom down to around 2000' before you see it.

Thanks for those.
Not being really good at aircraft id, be kind, but I'm guessing....
51' 28' 17.13N 0' 49' 40.95W is an Air Portugal 757,
51' 34' 37.67N 0' 41' 50.52W an Air Canada 747,
and no points for the RAF Lancaster bomber @ 52' 20' 10.87N 0' 11' 43.34W
