London City Airport Through Time Paperback / softback
by Paul Hogan
Part of the Through Time series
London City Airport was first conceived as part of the regeneration of the London Docklands at the start of the 1980s, a pilot landing on Heron Quays to prove it could be done.
Built on the land between the Royal Albert Dock and the King George V Dock, the first commercial services operated from the airport in October 1987, with the official opening by HM The Queen in November of that year.
The airport has since become a hub for people travelling to and from the City of London.Now in its twenty-fifth anniversary year, London City Airport is still looking at expansion, with a plan for phased expansion up to 2030.
In London City Airport Through Time, Paul Hogan uses a wonderful collection of photographs as well as interviews with some of those involved, to show the development of this key player in British aviation.
