    In cynical times, it’s very gratifying to read a Hart-warming story – Twin airline pilots retire by landing final flights at Heathrow 30 seconds apart .

    Nope, not (knowingly) relatives.

    A very nice story and clearly must have involved planning by ATC as well as BA. Are retiring pilots in the UK honoured by the water arch created by the airport fire services …

    That is a great story, thanks for posting it. (And I like “Hart-warming”).

    My brother-in-law, noe ex BA, received the water hose welcome/farewell 5 years ago when he flew in from San Paolo albeit the FO had to explain to passengers why fire engines were meeting the plane. Rapturous applause followed the announcement from cabin crew and passengers alike so I understand.

    Lovely story. Hope they have a good retirement.
