We caught up with Sean to find out more about his passion for aviation and top tips as a spotter. There’s also a great selection of his photos for you to enjoy as well!
Name: Sean Henderson
Age: 17 years old
Where are you from? I’m from Cork, in Ireland. I plane spot at Heathrow quite often as it’s one of the best places in Europe for plane spotters like me.
All 3! I enjoy everything and anything that involves aviation. I love to fly as I enjoy experiencing different airports. I love to spot all the different types of aircraft and liveries, and I take photos of the best ones.
Heathrow is a spotters paradise. There are so many spots that you can go to, like Myrtle Avenue and the planes fly right above you! It is an absolutely amazing experience, even if you’re not particularly into aviation. Not only that, but I love the variety of different aircraft and airlines that visit Heathrow, as this means spotters like myself can see a large variety of aircraft in just one single visit.
My favourite livery at Heathrow has to be a China Southern’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
