Portsmouth Airport

£9.99

Product description

Seventy years ago the city of Portsmouth entered the air age with the opening of what was then known as the municipal aerodrome. In 1928, at a time when the country was becoming air-minded in a big way, Portsmouth responded positively to the ~Air Ministry's letter to all towns and cities with a population of 20,000 or more, pointing out the advantages of having air facilities.

A consultation exercise was put under way, a site at the north-eastern side of Portsea Island was chosen and cleared, and on July 2, 1932, the Under-secretary for Air, Sir Philip Sassoon, officially declared the airport open.
