Heston Aerodrome c.1930s AFL03_aerofilms_c19981 Featured Aviation Print

Heston Aerodrome c.1930s AFL03_aerofilms_c19981

Heston Aerodrome, Hounslow, Middlesex. The control tower (centre) may have been the first purpose-built example and became the model for this class of building. Between 1931 and 1937 Heston Airport was operated as a commercial airport by Airwork Ltd (whose logo appears on the the Customs House and aircraft), after which it was taken over by the Air Ministry. It was used as a fighter base during wartime, but Heathrow was preferred as the site for a commercial airport and the aerodrome was closed in 1947. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

Graf Zeppelin EPW038817 Featured Aviation Print

Graf Zeppelin EPW038817

The Graf Zeppelin moored at Hanworth Aerodrome, London Air Park in July 1932. This was her third and final visit to the UK after a flight over London in 1930 and a 24-hour round-Britain passenger tour in August 1931. Once again she took a passenger tour around Britain in 24 hours before returning to Hanworth. Dr Hugo Eckener, the head of the Zeppelin passenger company, took personal charge of the Graf Zeppelin on several record breaking flights as well as using it as a public relations tool and an attraction drawing large crowds. From a copy negative. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121 Featured Aviation Print

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.
