What aircraft fly into London City

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of getting the Visual Flight London and I'm wondering what aircraft fly into London City on a regular basis? Any jets? Besides the DF Fed Ex 727 that will be dropping in there on a regular basis now. :-)billg

In real life you wouldn't see a Boeing 727 land at London City. I dont think the runway would be long enough. You can see Fokker 50s, Dornier Props, some biz jets, ATR 72s, Dash8s etc at London City.The only jet airliner I know of that goes there on a regular basis is a BAE 146 type plane.Hope that helps.Craig

Thx much! And yes, a 727 can get in ok. Getting out is a little more difficult. If you were sitting on one of the roofs at the end of the runway suntanning you'd probably get blown off. :-)billg

Try a 747-400 at 520K lbs, flaps 30. Totally illegal and dangerous, but do-able if you're crazy enough (I've done a lot of heavy iron landings in way-out places in my FS career).JS
