Get all of Ray Smith's freeware in the AVSIM library.

It's a toss up between the UK2000 and Aerosoft renditions.  I can say that the UK2000 version is pretty good but haven't tried the Aerosoft one.

 

Both seem to have their advantages and a quick Google search for "FSX Heathrow" will yield much more information including videos.

I don't believe Aerosoft has a freeware version of LHR

 

The OP wants free.

 

UK2000 has a cut down free version of LHR on the Xtreme product webpage.

Yeah I'll try that since he has a very good way of designing the airports.

Just a note:

 

You might want to consider an updated AFCAD for use with REX Worldwide Airports-HD!

 

I have several payware products for Heathrow, but if I didn't I'd be using REX's product for it!

 

I'm in the middle of a reinstall, but I'll try and post screen shots of Heathtrow with REX Worldwide Airports-HD.

Wouldn't do anything as of right now. LHR is a default "higher detail" airport which REX HD doesn't currently touch. Perhaps as they release the upgraded textures for these default airports it may look different.

True enough!  You know, I thought it was an Enhanced Airport, so I searched (Ctrl-F) the list I provided in the REX WWA-HD thread and it didn't come up!  I searched again for "London" and there it was.

 

That said, REX is slowly doing the Enhanced Airports, so that will be a nice treat!

 

Best wishes.
