Barton Aerodrome, Eccles, Manchester
Barton Aerodrome, Eccles, Manchester
Here are some of the planes on the field at Barton Aerodrome ( now named City Airport Manchester), home of the Lancashire Aero Club (the country's oldest flying club) and the Greater Manchester Police Helicopter. Behind the planes stands the Control Tower (a listed building!). This aerodrome was the first municipal airport in Britain and would have become "Manchester Airport" if the development at Ringway had not taken place.
