Heathrow's #AvGeek of the Month for December is Guss (AKA aviatorlondon).
We’ve caught up with Guss to find out more about his love and passion for aviation.
Where are you from: London, England
I would say my interest first stemmed from travelling as a child. I was always fascinated by how planes function and I even had the opportunity at an early age to explore the cockpit of many aircraft and meet many flight and cabin crew members.
Also, having lived under the Heathrow flight path for most of my life has meant I grew up seeing countless aircraft fly past every day.
Definitely the constant movement and variety of aircraft. You’re bound to see something new every time you visit, as it is one of the busiest airports in the world. The spotting community at Heathrow are very friendly and diverse and I have had the pleasure of meeting and becoming good friends with many other enthusiasts of various ages and backgrounds.
It would have to be the Etihad livery. I remember my excitement when it was first announced, where I waited to get a shot of its first ever departure from Heathrow almost 5 years ago in the freezing December cold.
