Manchester Airport First Visits

Manchester Airport First Visits

Ringway Publications

The closest excitement to a diversion session at Manchester Airport, was the arrival of a new type of aircraft! Covering an 80-year span, our latest book covers a selection of civil and military aircraft types making their first visits into Manchester Airport.

From the vintage Dakota, to brand-new types such as the Airbus A350 & Boeing 787, we take a discerning look at the ground-breaking aircraft; responsible for thrilling the crowds eagerly awaiting their first sighting! Also, and not to be underestimated, was the sadness of a final visit. Even the commonplace aircraft appearing for the final time could bring tears to the eyes of the most ardent enthusiasts, saying farewell to their old friends!

The narrative contains a brief synopsis of each visit, the types history at Ringway and in some cases its fate. Also included are some personal memories by the writer and first-hand witness accounts. Illustrated throughout with more than 290 original images, by renown aviation photographers including Geoff Ball, Nik French and Peter Hampson.

This book is a ‘must-have’ for all aviation enthusiasts everywhere!
