Toodle Pip, London

The Author apologises for extended absence.  She recently left her beloved Britain, home for the past 6 years, to return to the land of her birth, America.    As she deals with culture shock (and generous portion sizes) her attention has waned.  But she has returned, and with due Diligent shall share her observations on a regular basis (pending hurricane Sandy).

    I love that view! Always sit on the right side of the plane when going to London!

    What side do you prefer when flying from London to Philly? I usually do the left side so I see more coastline, as well as Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, but I think the right side has a better approach into Philadelphia.

      Depends. The right side is better to see the coast – Boston, LI Sound, sometimes NYC, if the plane is over the sea, and the right side is always better landing in Phila as you see center city. Sometimes the plane goes further inland – Adirondacks, Catskills, in which either side is good but again the right side is better getting near Phila. Sometimes the plane approaches from the northwest – over Chestnut Hill, N. Philly with great views of center city, then loops over south jersey and comes in from the east – constant views of center city all the way! You are correct, though, that if the plane is flying more over land but near the ocean over New England, than the left side is better.
