Watch This Viral Legend Plane-Spotting At Heathrow In A Vid With More Viewers Than The UK News


As Northern Europe attempts to manage the effects of Storm Eunice, one man’s Plane-spotting YouTube channel has given many folks a welcome distraction.

Jerry Dyer is an aviation enthusiast from the UK who runs the now-famous channel Big Jet TV. Dyer’s channel draw attention from across the globe when he began live-streaming himself commentating plane landings at Heathrow Airport during the storm.

In a style that closely resembles that of a UK Premier League Football commentator, Dyer attracted over 200,000 simultaneous viewers to his live stream as winds in some parts of the country were recorded at up to 196kph as per the ABC.

“Oh fair play mate. OOOH, easy son. Easy easy,” Dyer can be heard saying over the roar of a plane coming in to land.

“Are you sure? Are you sure?” he asks hypothetically as the wheels near the tarmac.

“Go on then, go on then! Yeah! Nicely done,” celebrates Dyer.

Thanks in part to a resurgence on TikTok, “train-spotting” and now “plane-spotting” have made their way back into the mainstream.

Creators such as mega-babe Francis Bourgeois and now Jerry Dyer have made a living for themselves chasing trains and planes all over the place and documenting their experiences.

Much of the enjoyment in watching “spotting” content comes from witnessing the genuine enthusiasm of the hosts. There’s something so pure about listening to someone talk about their hobby so passionately.

Not only does it make for entertaining viewing but you also end up appreciating the various types of trains and aircraft that get us from A to B as users on Twitter soon found out.
