Heathrow Airport readies for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

London’s Heathrow Airport is getting ready to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jublilee and expects more than 780,000 passengers to fly into town for the festivities between now and June 6th.

To set the scene, the airport painted a runway with a giant Union Jack flag and the image of the queen:

As passengers arrive, they’ll be greeted with red carpets, live bands, free Union Jack flags and invited to write congratulations messages to the Queen in books that will be sent to Buckingham Palace.
