It is going to be a fantastic day for all plane enthusiasts and Anthony at Car Hire Manchester Airport can’t believe how long it has been, since air travel began.
The Runway Visitor Park at Manchester Airport is set to have thousands of people on 14th September for a day of vintage fly pasts including the legendary Lancaster Bomber, which made its first flight from the airport.
The day which is a free event, will also include death defying parachute jumps, going back to when the airport opened in 1938 and there was a display from the Royal Air Force.
Andrew Cowan, chief operating officer for MAG, which owns the airport, said: “This year has been a significant milestone in our history as we reached our 75th anniversary. It’s even more significant for us this year as we’ve completed a transformational increase in the size of the company having added London Stansted to our group of airports. This summer, Manchester has surpassed 20m passengers again and we are the third largest airport in the UK, and we will begin to build our Airport City development this year, further cementing Manchester’s reputation as a European business destination. We’ve achieved much in our opening 75 years of existence and we’re well placed for an even brighter future.”
At intervals throughout the day there will be fly pasts and displays of vintage aircraft including the legendary Lancaster Bomber, Hornet Moth, Dragon and Morane Sauline. A fancy dress competition wearing 30’s clothing will also be part of the day.
