Heathrow – A look back at the history
Heathrow Airport has quite a rich history which goes back to the time when the Vicar of Harmondsworth sold off his land. This was in 1930 when Richard Fairey, a British aero engineer, and aircraft builder, bought the land, a 150-acre plot, from the Vicar of Harmondsworth. This plot was used by Fairey for testing and assembling aircraft, and it was then named as Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome
The same land was then turned to an RAF Heston base for troop-carrying aircraft by the government during World War II. As the war ended, the purpose of the RAF Heston ended too. It was then handed over to the Air Ministry officially. On the 1st of January 1946, this base officially became London’s civil airport.
The first-ever aeroplane to take off from Heathrow was a Lancaster bomber called Starlight. A lot of changes have gone through after the first takeoff from London’s civil airport. In 1951, as much as 700,000 passengers were served by the airport. This year is also known for other significant changes, like designing and building permanent buildings of the airport.
In the year 1966, the airport was named as Heathrow Airport, which was previously known as London Airport. 1 billion passengers were served in the year 2006. A lot of changes have been made after that, and Heathrow has changed its operations, security systems, facilities and capacity. All these changes have made Heathrow as one of the major international airports of the UK.
