A little about Heathrow
Heathrow Airport, previously known as London Airport, is a famous international airport. It is effectively the busiest airport in the UK. Heathrow Airport serves around 72 million passengers every year. 80 aircraft, both national and international, fly to over 180 destinations around the world.
You will always find tight security at Heathrow Airport. The usual security includes aviation units by Metropolitan Police and drone detection. Additional security includes the army and armoured vehicles. Furthermore, Heathrow has other facilities available to the public, such as prayer rooms, counselling rooms, hotels and transportation.
The land where Heathrow stands proudly today was a mere 150-acre plot owned by the Vicar of Harmondsworth. Richard Fairey, who was a british aeroengineer, bought this land and made an airbase for testing and building aircraft. This was named as Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome. The UK government then requisitioned this land, as well as the surrounding lands, during World War II to make RAF Heston. This served as a base for troop-carrying aircraft.
The same airbase was later handed over to the Air Ministry after the war, and they developed this airbase into London’s first civil airport. The first aircraft to take off from the civil airport was a Lancaster bomber named Starlight. In 1966, London Airport was renamed to Heathrow Airport, as we know it today.
Heathrow Airport has undergone a lot of changes over the years to be one of the major international airports today. The services, passenger numbers, and operations at the airport have changed drastically. By the year 2006, it had handled over 1 billion passengers across over 14 million flights.
