When Star Wars came to Gatwick

When Star Wars came to Gatwick

Posted by Airspotters on 3rd Feb 2024

Embarking on a thrilling pursuit, I diligently monitored the movement of an aircraft from Los Angeles to Gatwick via Flight radar. Armed with my trusty Canon camera equipped with a modest 300mm lens, I eagerly ventured to my favourite spot where a throng of enthusiasts had gathered to capture the aircraft. But, knowing that the key to a remarkable shot lay in being where others were not, I quietly positioned myself 100 metres away from them. My move paid off when I managed to capture an awe-inspiring image with Gatwick in the backdrop. This photo swiftly attained viral status and was featured on several notable websites such as BBC, ITV, and countless others around the globe, even gracing print publications. While I received no monetary compensation, this exhilarating feat ignited my passion and photography.
