A FlyerTalker Takes Us Back to London Heathrow Circa 1990

A FlyerTalker Takes Us Back to London Heathrow Circa 1990

It’s time for a throwback!
One FlyerTalker re-discovered a book called Heathrow by Jonathan Falconer. CMK10 shared nostalgic images of London Heathrow airport, dated back to 1990. It’s interesting to see the changes over the decades.

First purchased to be used as a flight testing center by an aircraft manufacturer, the land (of which we now know to Heathrow Airport) became a site of interest for military use and later re-planned for civil operations.

British Airways’ Concorde retired in 2003. It took its first flight in 1969.

Pan Am and TWA were ranked as Heathrow’s top 10 airlines.

Thank you for sharing, CMK10!

    Interesting that in the last photo A320 movements are listed in the “wide-bodied” column.

    Very interesting read all around though. Nice article.
