The winner of Heathrow Airport’s August #AvGeek of the Month is Henry Heming.
Henry tells us how he’s been an #avgeek ever since he was little, but not only is he a huge aviation geek, he’s also an incredible travel video creater and plane spotter.
We’ve caught up with this month’s winner to find out more about his interest in aviation and photography.
Name: Henry Heming
Location: London, UK
Aviation enthusiast, spotter or photographer? Or all 3? All three!
What first interested you in aviation?/Why are you an #AvGeek?
I have loved aeroplanes since I was a kid and I have surrounded myself in the industry since a young age. I enjoy the thrill of no two days being the same and the technological advancements that have been brought about thanks to the aviation industry.
What do you love most about coming to Heathrow?
I love the variety of airlines that fly into the airport and how busy it is. LHR is a focal point for meeting friends and having a good day out.
Favourite aircraft livery at Heathrow?
My favourite livery is the Landor livery on the Boeing 747
Favourite fact about a particular aircraft? (or aviation?)
On the Boeing 777-300ER, the GE90 engine is the world’s largest and most powerful jet engine, producing over 110,000 pounds of thrust.

Any tips for other #AvGeeks?
- Be yourself. Put your own spin on the pictures/videos that you take & don’t be afraid to share these with airports/airlines!
- Meet people. Whilst the #planespotting community is quite niche, everyone is quite nice to talk to when it comes to the love of aviation. There are a number of Facebook groups about Planespotting and Aviation that share a lot of aeroplane pictures.
- Download an app like Flightradar24 so you don’t get caught out when a special liveried aircraft is coming in on a different runway or early/late!
