Description

...without leaving the ground. You and three guests will enjoy a private tour of the British Airways base at Heathrow Airport. You'll experience the thrill of a lifetime as you take the controls and fly one of BA's full motion Boeing 747-400 flight simulators, which is part of a fleet of 15, each of which is valued at around £10m ( ebaft.com). A behind-the-scenes tour of the engineering unit at Heathrow is included in this lot, and the winning bidder will be taken up close to the magnificent engines of both the A380 and the 787 Dreamliner. Finally, you'll get an overview of the whole operation on the tenth-floor viewing gallery of Heathrow Airport's air traffic control tower, which stands at a towering 87m. There, you'll learn how one of the world's busiest airports operates, and see the challenges faced by air traffic controllers on an hourly basis.
