If your into Weather or Geography or History or even Aviation read this wealth of information I have put together to explain a 10 day trip I did in May 2015 to go Storm Chasing in America. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_chasing
If your thinking of doing a storm chase holiday watch everything ive listed , it might take you a day or 2 to see everything but it will at least prepare you for what its really like. 99% of the time you will be driving and not seeing Tornados so enjoy seeing America as you travel huge distances.
Written by David S from Cambridge England from 14th March 2019 onwards as I look through I note book I used in 2015. I Dont know why its taken me this long to get round to writing up my notes and thoughts. Excuse the many typos im sure I will make ! if I make any errors as I try to recall events of this epic trip please email me and correct me,( about times/dates/locations not about spelling errors ) id like to make this as thorough as I can before the good memories fade. This has been like putting together a 1000 piece puzzle while blindfolded, putting 1000 videos in order of when I filmed them while trying to work out where I filmed them has been a huge effort.
The Holiday was with a company called Weather Holidays , https://www.weatherholidays.com/ they have a blog on that website here https://blogs.weatherholidays.com/ there is also a Facebook group run by them called Storm Slags and there is also forum for people who have been on their trips or thinking to go with this company, https://www.netweather.tv/forum/forum/168-storm-chase-usa/
it’s a useful way to chat to other people who you will be travelling with before you go so you can arrange to take the same flights etc. Also helped with knowing what immigration forms you need to fill in online before you go to USA and the hotel address to put on these forms.
They are British storm chasers who have been going to USA for a few years now doing about 3 or 4 tours per year back to back for paying customers im May / June each year. They compete with a growing number of USA based Storm chase holiday companys. Im not sure how I found this company maybe I Googled Storm chasing holidays and found them I honestly cant recall. As im British also I opted to try this company. I paid £1850 for the holiday plus flights that cost £1000 . plus you will need spending money for meals etc on top of that plus of course any extra photography equipment I needed for the trip so it was not a cheap holiday ! , ( Paul who for some reason I thought was an ex footballer but now I don’t think that’s correct who maybe sells jewellery ? was tour leader/ main weather guru , Tom Lynch an elderly slim man was a comedian and was a driver for us , Ian a tall IT salesman and the IT guy on the trip to fix all the equipment used to track Storms was another of our drivers and I think he owns the company )
Other paying storm chasers I shared the trip with but didn’t know before the trip are .
Mike age 23 from Manchester a web designer,
Steve a vicars son from Manchester who works in Greggs food bakery shop ,
Maddy Mads Madeline a tube train driver from London born in 1975 she came with
Holly who is Mads sister and works in Somerset on a farm,
Elise from Birmingham a middle aged lady , and knows Coventry / Warwickshire etc
Jeremy who drives vehicles around the country for a living and has done farm work etc. I believe this was the first time any of us paying customers had done a USA storm chase so we were all newbies.
I took thousands of videos while on this holiday using a Full HD ( high definition) 1080p Camcorder , it was a Panasonic V550 Camcorder which I loved . https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/HC-V550K.html plus I took some photos using the Camcorder .
when I got home I spent about 2 months labelling them all and uploading them to my Youtube account it was a massive chore to do ! ( My ISP must have struggled to cope with the amount of data I was uploading ! ) the original videos look even better than on Youtube as Youtube compress the original videos so they can stream them quicker to you. Throughout this article I will insert the videos I took into the correct timeline of my trip, its up to you which ones you watch. You can use Youtube to leave a comment on any of the videos if you have any questions about a specific video . or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org copy and paste a link to the video you have a question about and then ask away .
what I call the best 114 videos I filmed are in this playlist called “storm chase 2015 best vids 20may15” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V3whij21uI&list=PLiVKwaUJvwmVtyldfFKnMaEphpRtfq8mf
the rest of what I filmed ( another 847 videos) are here “ storm chase 2015 videos “ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNGS4BU_p-Y&list=PLiVKwaUJvwmW9ADN5Ge0jGRtI4rj2UVBo I have put the date and time they were filmed in the title of each video to help you know when each video was filmed. ( not sure if I changed the time zone from uk time to usa time)
I also just created a 3rd playlist for videos I had not added to a playlist before “ USA storm chase 2015 videos “ https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiVKwaUJvwmW-NuNM_9eax9_e91wUVUMk plus as I add videos to this article I am improving some of their titles so those ones will be added to this playlist also.
“ storm chase 2015 aviation vids ok “ contains 41+ videos I filmed on the trip of planes/ what I filmed from my flights to and from USA https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiVKwaUJvwmX7SAChF9IptV_2do2DbeuT

Holiday Day1 as I count it, Friday 8th May 2015, I David get a taxi from Cambridge to London Heathrow Airport for about £195 Return. Its about a 1hr50 drive to the airport.I met the taxi driver while at Fowlmere an RSPB reserve not too far from Cambridge and he had given me his details a few weeks ago. His son does up VW camper vans, the trip goes fine and Im dropped off outside Terminal 5 which is British Airways newish terminal I think by something like 8 or 9am . After checking in and having my suitcase taken I then had ages to kill in the airport, im sure I sat and filmed for a while from inside the terminal planes landing and taking off on both runways Heathrow has ( runway 09R was doing take offs and runway 09L was doing landings . Terminal 5 is at the West of the Heathrow site .
Here are the videos I filmed while waiting for my flight ( skip past them if you wish )

remember use the scroll wheel on your mouse or the plus and minus signs when on any Google Earth or Google Maps web page links to zoom out to see where these places are in relation to the rest of America if you want.
I recall when my taxi arrived seeing a great vantage point for 09L there were even 2 or 3 people there in lawn chairs ! plane spotting. I looked around some shops too.
8 May 2015 The flight I was on was a British Airways Boeing 777 plane which took off from London Heathrow Airport at 1222pm local time by my watch on Friday 8th May 2015 , the video of the take off as filmed from on board is here
1226pm British Airways 777 full Take off onboard view Heathrow 8May15 1226p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V3whij21uI skip to 4min04 to just watch from the point where we get lined up on the runway , looks like I took off from runway 09R https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-0.4831065,15.79z?hl=en see 09R painted on the runway here https://email@example.com,-0.48162421,20.87136836a,1113.17170242d,35y,0h,0t,0r use that to work out the building I saw after I was in the air , at 6min28 into my video that might be Twickenham Stadium,
Using the playback feature of Planefinder.net I think I was on G-STBE Flight BA193 which was to be 4749.1 miles see https://planefinder.net/flight/BAW31F/time/2015-05-08T11:20:00.000Z/speed/20 that’s 1123am GMT so was the time on 8 May 2015 on GMT+1 ? if yes then that’s my flight and thanks so much Planefinder for letting us see flights that far back in time, Flightradar24.com only let you look back a week.
My boarding pass shows it was flight BA0193 from Heathrow Terminal 5 to Dallas Fort Worth Texas terminal D , I was on seat 29A, I was told to clear security by 1115am, gates close at 1130am and departure time was supposed to be 1150am. I was in World traveller Class.
The ticket cost me just under £1000 return for a standard Economy ticket I think it definatly wasn’t 1st class or business class etc ! ( I bought it online from British Airways website the 1st time ive used their website ) as I opted for a window seats for both journeys. ( BA charge you an extra £30-40ish per trip for the privilege of choosing your own seat ! ) it was about a 10 hour flight to Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Texas USA from London Heathrow , the weird noises of hydraulics as we taxi to take off is something ill never forget, and I chatted to a friendly young American man between watching movies on the screen on the back of the chair in front of me. ( film about an artificial intelligence lady robot I think) , Ex Machina 2014 was the film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0470752/
I possibly also watched The Departed a Jack Nicholson film, I briefly met Jeremy another person paying to do the same holiday as me. He was sitting some rows behind me so I had a brief chat whenever I got up to use the loo. I had a bad back before the trip so 10 hours sitting on my arse wasn’t great. I wasn’t too comfortable for the last few hours of the flight. The food they served seemed fine.

Went through Security and had to place hand on a screen to take your fingerprints… the system didn’t seem to want to work for me so I was called over to a Staffed security line & was asked questions. I explained I was here to go Tornado chasing !
Later on in the trip I found out Mads had also had an encounter with security at the airport and had told the person she thought he was on a power trip ! anyway they let her into America .
8 May 2015 After we got off the plane I waited for my luggage on the baggage claim carousels https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baggage_carousel then made my way towards the place we had been told to go to in the airport to be collected by someone running the holiday. Tom ( one of the trips drivers) met me and Jeremy and hustled us to catch a bus just outside really quickly. Lugging my large heavy suitcase onto the bus I was surprised when Tom said as soon as we got to the waiting car in a few minutes we were going out chasing even though this wasn’t supposed to be a chase day ( id just got off a 10 hour flight all I wanted to do was freshen up and rest !) .So I never saw the hotel we would call our base for 10 or so days. I was never even asked if I needed to freshen up/ go to the loo etc. The airport seemed massive as we left much bigger than Heathrow with way more runways etc. Not sure exactly where they had parked in the Airport outskirts but the bus dropped us off somewhere on the outskirts of the Airport.
We got into large Hired Chevrolet vehicles like Range Rover sized cars ( 2 front seats and room for 3 adults in the back) and then boot space for all our luggage, and drove to try see lightning storms ( all of us fit into 2 vehicles) . We Were in hired Chevrolet Tahoe vehicles I guess 2015 model ones https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/chevrolet/tahoe/2015 says they have 355BHP ! 5.3ltr V8 that gets about 23mpg on motorways. Its 5683Lbs in weight without people and baggage I think, itll do 0-60mph in 6.7sec , though with 5 adults plus baggage it wont get anywhere near that time ! , I think it was Ian driving , I was in the back with mike and steve. Not sure if Jeremy was up front ?

I spent $18 on a Cowboy burger and 1 bottle of Budweiser Beer, im sure we all paid for our meals separately, ( I must have taken a load of USA currency with me that I changed in a bank in Cambridge before I left for the holiday) 1 person on the trip didn’t think to bring much cash with them and ended up borrowing money all the time from lots of different people including the tour staff !

9 May 2015 I slept till 4am USA time when I guess the time zone difference/body clock kicked in and I woke up far earlier than needed ! , I took an alarm clock with me for this holiday as I didn’t ever want to be the person who overslept and causes us to ever leave late etc ! , Christ I did a lot of planning for this holiday I tried to think of everything id need hence I had the biggest suitcase I think on the trip, Jeremy turned up with a small sports bag I wouldn’t have found big enough for a 1 day trip anywhere.

In the morning as we waited to leave in the lobby of the motel I heard an American man complaining to the lady at reception about a number of things allegedly wrong with his room such as the toilet , I got the feeling he was trying to get away with paying less for his stay and was making stuff up but who knows.
Paul was getting Tom to do Bruce Forcythe poses ! and going on about Chicken George some toy mascot thing they found funny.

By the time it was pitch black we saw 2 Tornados , I must admit this was extremely difficult to see, I could hear Paul shouting about them but the only time I could see them was when there was lightning in the distance. It would be a very good idea for tour organisers to get a good laser pen to point out exactly where to look. And a good torch so we can see where were walking at the edge of roads and fields. I tried filming in the correct direction im not sure what I captured. These were confirmed online as tornados. This was in Grinnell Kansas https://email@example.com,-100.60403898,903.35277986a,34019.53594482d,35y,-0.00000018h,1.01447442t,0r/data=ChIaEAoIL20vMHQ3NWsYASABKAI met up with other storm chasers one who chatted to me maybe James who works for news tv.

At 1111am a great moment for me was getting to see the TIV ( Tornado intercept vehicle) with Sean Casey onboard come up behind us and over take us ! ive seen this vehicle on many episodes of Storm Chasers a Discovery Channel tv show https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sean_Casey_(filmmaker) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_Chasers_(TV_series) I watched as many episodes of this as I could before booking this holiday to understand what I was getting myself in for !
1111am Sean Casey in Tiv Nebraska storm Chase 10 May15 1111a https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfpLZtls5yc Holly laughs at his vehicle,
But getting over taken by this large heavy vehicle frustrated me as it showed we were plodding along , I really wanted us to keep up with their pace and just follow them but we just kept going at our own pace and they disappeared ahead of us . Holly was laughing her head off when she saw the TIV and thought it looked like a piece of crap ( she had not seen Storm Chasers before going on this holiday ) Marcus s Gutierrez was the TIV driver ,

2646 W Broadway St Ardmore, OK 73401 USA , it’s a casual American eatery with photos of rock stars and a guitar lined room with live music sometimes. ( Have to say I didn’t know any of the stars on the wall I guess they were country music stars or something which is not my cup of tea ! )
The logo for this is 2 frogs tied up together ! I bought a T-Shirt from here as we left for $19 ( Steve got 1 just b4 me) the Tshirt has the cartoon drawing of 2 frogs tied up on it & ive had a lot of funny looks since wearing it in the UK ! but my neice and nephew like it as I have a pond with real frogs in so they know I like frogs. ( receipt shows it was $16.95 plus $1.53 tax so $18.48 , ) The meal I had cost me $25.35 we left at 842pm. I think I had Catfish which I recall I wouldn’t order again , with green beans, potato etc, Beer I guess. Others had Steak ( Steve did I think) this is where we discussed a kind of contest you can do in a place in Texas https://www.bigtexan.com/72-oz-steak/ where if you can eat a 72ounce steak in under 60mins you get it for free. This is an insane amount of meat to try and eat and must leave you feeling aweful. Steve was contemplating trying to do this. I don’t know if he ever did this on future holidays.

817pm We stop at a KFC to get food , we experience very slow service from the staff , its likely the roof was leaking at this KFC can any1 recall ? , my meal was around $10 and im last to be served, Holly is not happy and Elise shouts at a female KFC worker as our food is just sitting getting cold behind the counter ! She really got angry. I remember I literally just got a straw and napkin , sat down inside the KFC to eat my meal and I think it was Ian who suddenly said weve got to go right now ! I hadn’t even had one mouthful of food so I bundled up my food into a bag and went back to the car.
It was such a manic rush I didn’t record the exact location or time we left but by using https://www.kfc.com/store-locator?query=lubbock&catering=off&buffet=off&wifi=off my best bet is we went to 215 University Avenue , Lubbock Texas 79415, I found my receipt I got the address correct ! I paid $5.89 2P ML or B/W breat wing plus small coleslaw, small potwedge plus biscuit medium drink Pepsi $1.29 tax 59cents so total $7.77 I paid at 830pm .
id guess we left about 845pm ish , I slowly attempted to eat my KFC meal as we drove but I had to keep stopping to try film stuff so it took me ages to finish it and it was mostly cold : ( , I also wasted all my Coleslaw tub as its impossible to eat that in a moving car.

15 May 2015 : This is where I went out with Ian, Holly and Elise to some shops in Salina between 430pm and 717pm. I was looking for toys for my niece and nephew mainly, I went off on my own as no one else was after baby stuff ! , I bought a toy that was 3 or 4 cubes within plastic cubes that opened out etc.$9.99 and soft peek a boo something $15.99 plus tax came to $28.07 The town seemed pretty dead. I went into a childrens clothing store called Simply Baby and more ( central mall salina KS 67401) and got obell clickity twist $9.99 and BB toys soft peek $15.99 plus $2.09 tax, that was at 501pm, plus looked around 1 other toy shop but they had nothing for really young children,
I went into a Dollar General store which is a like a Tesco local,( 140 S Santa f eave Salina KS 67401-2810 , https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-97.60916695,373.13341313a,104.62498146d,35y,0h,43.73217455t,0r/data=ChcaFQoNL2cvMTFjNW5mODk5bRgBIAEoAg I got some coloured chalk $2 , Reeces 26oz $2.95 , = $5.35 with tax ,I paid at 520pm, I had to wait as it seemed to be a change of shift and the woman was switching cashier draws with a rather moody woman, then Ian came and found me and said everyones in a bar down the road..say no more !
We went to the Blue Sky bar Ian bought me a pint of stout which was either Guiness or Murphys, cheers Ian. Then I had another and ordered a chicken pesto pizza which was $11 or so I gave $20 and didn’t ask for change. One young man came in all dressed up like a Cowboy , one of the waitreses looked really moody. Bar is here https://email@example.com,-97.60872182,373.15901872a,229.90013777d,35y,0h,0t,0r

Paul has gone off to a farm on his own to meet someone he knows to fire guns etc so our decision to drive all the way here seems to have been because of this pre arranged visit he had planned that’s the conclusion a lot of us came to. Jeremy etc got back 8pm, On tv is animal planet some boat show. I eat my pizza in my Motel room.

Cyril ( a place) is about 6 miles from this location , we didn’t stop here so im confused that Steve seems to think he saw a Tornado here as I write up my notes now in May 2019 4 years later !

Ian needs to drive to El Rino Oklahoma to get a card he left at a petrol station, Steve volunteers to go with him in the morning, ( this is 100miles away from Ardmore if there was a straight road there) That’s like me driving from Cambridge to Heathrow to pick something up and then have to drive back home only to then do the rest of the days driving ! ouch .
There is no breakfast at this motel but there is a Denny’s nearby if we wish , We find out his will be a down day ( as in no storms to chase ) , we had to wait for Ian to get back with the missing card before we could set off at 12 noon. I remember filming birds from the car park and 2 truckers got out of a big lorry cab and when I explained were from England here to chase Tornados he asked “ are you guys nuts “ ! , I had a chat to Mads while sitting on the ground I could tell her and Paul were not getting on.

17 May 2015 205pm/ 230pm we get to the Best Western motel in Irving Texas , I ask Ian what were doing for lunch after we are all out of the cars and for the 1st time on the trip he gets a bit stroppy , it was a perfectly normal question for a paying guest to have but I cant be bothered to be rude back as he has driven a lot so me and Jeremy dump off our stuff in our room and then walk to a nearby Burger King . https://email@example.com,-97.00802159,185.90633592a,401.14783064d,35y,0h,0t,0r/data=ChcaFQoNL2cvMTFiOHY3dGQwYxgBIAEoAg its just round the corner from our Motel. For $9.19 including 70 cents tax I get a bacon cheeseburger medium fries and Fanta peach medium ( in USA they have different flavours of common drinks to what ive seen in the UK ) . I paid at 241pm
After eating Jeremy goes back to the motel and I decide to go shopping in the huge Walmart near us. https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-97.00688992,178.27872893a,408.77543952d,35y,0h,0t,0r/data=ChcaFQoNL2cvMTFiOHY3dGQwYxgBIAEoAg
I intend to buy a load of gifts for family etc and a few things for myself to spend some of the money ive got left, I get a Disney dress for my neice $9.97 , baby socks $6.24 , shorts, a shirt for my nephew $7.88 , 4 large bags of Reeces pieces for $10 each, for neighbours etc, a sports magazine $7.99 , coloured chalk set, blue tshirt for me $5.44 a white fishing tshirt for Jeremy to say thanks for being my room mate., Pistachios bag $13.98 , band aids $6.47 , bug/sunscreen, a frisbe, I bought about 18 items for $168 , the young black lady on the till bags up the good for you with a way to have the plastic bags held open ( why don’t uk supermarkets do this ) I paid at 447pm, I walk back to the hotel through the Walmart parking lot. Funniest tv blunders 3 is on tv. I have some more of the Cider bottles id bought b4. I knocked on Steves door to invite him to go for food, I had 1 cigarette..ive been a non smoker for a few years.
I think some of the others on our Tour went and used the Motel pool etc this afternoon , no one had organised a trip to see where JFK was shot etc.
17 May 2015 We go to the same Burger King I had lunch at ,( 1950 Esters rd, Irving TX 75061, https://email@example.com,-97.00921493,173.11758505a,148.02213906d,35y,52.1221128h,44.99540006t,0r/data=ChcaFQoNL2cvMTFidzN6ZzMwdxgBIAEoAg now im with Jeremy and Steve its 830pm ish and im sure I see the same van parked outside it I saw at lunchtime ( I think people living out of a van ) . the food costs $8.11 I have a bacon cheeseburger whopper and medium fries and a Diet Cherry Coke. A Black lady that works there asked Steve if he’s from London . After we go back to the Motel, Top 10 funniest is on tv, I chill out then one of the Die Hard films is on.
Cant recall what day Steve told me but he told me about a friend of his being murdered in Manchester & the man that did it is in prison. We both agree he should stay in prison for 25 years and then they should hang him.
Monday 18th May 2015 is day 10 of 10 of the Storm chasing holiday our last day of Tour 1 .

I get a 6inch Tuna sandwich $4.25 and a 30oz Sprite drink for $1.80 plus 50cents tax so tal of $6.55 https://www.subway.com/en-US/MenuNutrition/Menu/All the Subway food in USA tastes fine, I once won a Subway meal via some local radio show and when I went to get it from Mill Road Cambridge it was the worst meal ive ever had. ( the bacon had a funny taste to it like metal I guess from sitting in poorly cleaned metal pots, plus the Coke drink was flat no bubbles at all and a really weird taste ! honestly it was so bad I threw it away plus the cookie was as hard as a hockey puck. Terrible experience and ive not used a UK Subway since. It was so bad I actually emailed them and they offered me a free meal ! I told them I wont take them up on the offer.
I put sun cream on as Ian is sharing a bottle he has. Netweather app storm radar ?

And that’s the end of my 10 Days storm chasing trip in America, I will write up a brief summary at the bottom of this article.
Tuesday 19 May 2015 is the day im due to fly home from Dallas Fort Worth
Around 10am theres a knock on my door ..its Paul and he says “ oh my god” we he’s sees ive just got out of bed ( Christ ive had at the absolute most 7 hours hours sleep ) anyway he says they need to do to the airport to sort out some missing bag or something for someone that’s due to start Tour 2 soon , I cant recall how long I had to get ready maybe an hour or so , Holly and Steve come to see me too which was nice of them I assume I said our goodbyes then and exchanged email addresses. I would have had a shower and packed my stuff. ( seems most people who did tour one were flying home 1 day after me for what ever reasons ) let me know what you all did on your extra day please. I briefly meet a few people outside our hotel that are doing tour 2.
Im Driven to the airport and I think someone doing tour 2 the next 10 days of storm chasing with a different bunch of guests comes in the car to try sort out a missing bag situation. I get dropped off outside the terminal . I use a lift to get up 1 level . Inside I buy a small bottle of Aquafina water $2.25 and I eat a McDonalds meal for $7.57 a Big Mac meal plus Diet Coke. Tax was 58cents, ( I have forgotten to boycott them ) paid for that at 1243pm ,
When I took my bag to the American Airlines desk they weighed it and said it was really overweight ! so I went and dumped a huge amount of travel leaflets and brochures I had picked up on the trip in a bin , I just kept some that I still really wanted but my bag was still over weight so they fined me $102 ! , I bought some Chanel no5 perfume for my mum as its her birthday soon in Buckaroo Duty free North D-N106, 2333 south International Pkwy, DFW Airport TX 75261 at 1226pm she puts it into a plastic bag and seals it with a stapler it’s a Security Tamper-Evident bags ( STEBS) and is TSA approved .
Chat to a black girl waiting for the same flight as me, she had been to America to work as an Au pair , her English wasn’t great and I got the feeling she had probably worked hard for a very low wage. I also spotted one lady in the airport good enough to be a Playboy model.
333pm American Airlines N471AA taxi DFW Texas storm chase 19may15 333p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Uji0Vxz0bE ( 33sec vid ) another plane I see on the ground while im in my plane.
I took off around 408pm USA time 19 May 2015 ( schedule was for 340pm take off ) on an American Airlines Boeing 777 plane ( even though I booked on British Airways website and flew to the USA on BA I had to fly back on AA ! they have some route share agreement or something, if id known that I wouldn’t have bothered using BA ) I will try to work out what exact plane I was on, when / if I find out ill add that here . I asked om a Heathrow Facebook group they said google LHR archives , so http://www.lhr-lgw.co.uk/archive-main-munu.html from that I get this info for May 20 2015 they date I landed ,
, KDFW is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dallas/Fort_Worth_International_Airport N733AR is the registration of the plane I was on so this is the plane https://www.airfleets.net/ficheapp/plane-b777-33524.htm its an average of 9hours50 flight time from DFW to LHR and is 7644km, more info on that exact aircraft shows it’s a Boeing 777-323ER its first flight was 6 January 2015 so it was just 4 months old when I flew on it , it has 2x GE GE90-115B1 engines . AA050 is the flight number, 541 is the time in GMT I landed at Heathrow and 340 is the parking stand number near Terminal 3 the plane stopped at after we landed .
Im sat near the back of the plane on the right a window seat I paid extra for.Im in seat 41L my boarding pass says, Im sat next to a middle aged American man im now sure was an Air Marshall ! , we instantly got chatting and he offered to send me some sharks teeth etc ! . he tells me to get Lonesome Dove a tv mini series https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096639/?ref_=nv_sr_1 ( I actually didn’t get round to watching that for a few years but im glad I saw it it’s a long Western about a Cattle drive and fighting Indians etc )

Baggage claim took ages in fact I think my bag was the very last to be put onto it I guess as it had a ticket put on it saying heavy bag. I think they also said there was a shortage of baggage handlers. My leather name tag that was attached to my suitcase was missing and lost forever too by Heathrow. I don’t buy any duty free eg Baileys drink as prices didnt seem cheap £13 for a bottle and the staff look bored and make no effort to sell us anything, I go through Customs nothing to declare by 142am us time / 742am uk time.
I go outside and wait for my taxi which is Michael the bloke who dropped me here to, I phone him and he’s waiting close by so only takes 5 to 10mins to arrive and quickly pick me up outside the hectic confusing area outside Heathrow. As we drive home I pass a model Airbus A380 outside Heathrow https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1037560/Heathrow-airports-BA-Concorde-landmark-replaced-foreign-airlines-Airbus.html here it is on Google Earth https://email@example.com,-0.45296298,17.73996078a,322.2686888d,35y,0.00000001h,44.99805345t,0r/data=ChIaEAoIL20vMDNqbjQYASABKAI so that’s the direction I left from.
Emirates Airbus A380 model plane at London Heathrow Airport 20 may 2015 154a us https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw7wJ0qHaY4 so that’s 754am Uk time now .
I got home about 945am . I took the shampoo samples out of my case right away as in 2007 when I got home from New York they had leaked everywhere ! . I think I ended up filling up 6x 64gb SDXC memory cards with video of this trip ! so I had to transfer all that footage onto an external hard drive and then begin the task of labelling the 1000+ videos I took on the trip. Id say it took me at least a month to label them all and upload them to Youtube. Im glad I uploaded them as it gives other people the chance to see what a storm chasing Holiday is like . I know lots of people that do photography and Videography and don’t bother to share their videos .
So would I do it again ? ,maybe one day .
Other things I recall from the trip..
I tell a Sherlock Holmes Tent joke made everyone laugh . ,
What did the girls do last day/ next day their flights/ I heard Holly & Mads had a bit of a argument as they were about to board their plane home .
