Those were the Days

Welcome , just a short blog this week showing Luton in what may be termed the end of the "Good Old Days" when airlines were run by people interested in aviation not accountants interested in the bottom line.

From a September 1968 edition of the Luton News we see an aerial view of Luton at the end of the summer season, with a Britannia Airways Bristol Britannia on one of only 5 terminal stands, another inside their hangar on the right  and an Ambassador and BAC 1-11 outside the Autair Hangar, whilst the graveyard area is still under construction and the light aircraft stand and the "ponderosa" have yet to be built.
