Covering the early history of Heathrow Airport, Charles Woodley examines the development of London Airport's North Side. Filling a gap in aviation history, the book covers the north side up to its final closure in 1970 when flights transferred to the South Side terminal. Illustrated with a wealth of archive photographs and much nostalgic appeal, the book remembers many of the favourite aircraft to fly from Heathrow over the years, including Stratocruisers, Comets and Constellations, and recounts a multitude of memories from airport and airline workers over the years. This affectionate book recalls days gone by and will appeal not only to `propliner' aircraft enthusiasts but also to anyone who had an association with the airport, looking at the early years through the eyes of those who worked there.show more
