London airport nostalgia


Recommended Posts

..........and in 1979, behind the girl reading, when you could still go outside and look at the airliners without being shot. They've changed the sign.

I was there in 1959 on a school outing. I wonder if I'm in that picture... Standing on the roof as an 11-year-old watching planes taking off was probably the most exciting thing I'd ever done.

Perhaps you are in this one? The children are more interested in the pool of water than the planes!

Hope I'm not muscling in here....could just have been 1959 but not in that livery........

Archival monochrome image of a Vickers Vanguard 953C Merchantman airliner in British Airways Cargo livery in the air at Heathrow Airport, London, 1979, with a view of Hunting-Clan Air Transport hangar, demolished 1986. Possibly G-APEP "Superb" now at Brooklands Museum Surrey England
