London Airport - Heathrow in the 1950s & 60s DVD Cover .

Documentary (2006)

Starring:
Howard Asbridge (Narrator)

If you enjoyed our London Airport – Heathrow in the 1960s/70s DVD, you’re going to love this second look at vintage LAP, because it goes back as far as the 1950s. We used a completely new collection of full-colour cine film and authentic sound, to bring aircraft like BOAC and Pan American Stratocruisers alive once more.

Some of the vehicles are almost as interesting as the airliners. There’s a scene on Pan Am’s ramp with Strats and DC6Bs, that’s full of early 1950s vans and trucks dashing about – wonderful stuff.

Several of our cameramen worked airside and could therefore get the best shots and catch some of the rarer visitors. It’s impossible to list them all here, so do have a look at the on-line Factsheet, but my favourite has to be an Air Jordan DC6, or is it the LTU DC4?

The variety is amazing; take Constellations for example. We have Skyways, South African, TWA and Air Ceylon L749s, Lufthansa, KLM, Capitol, Flying Tiger and Air France L1049s, TWA and Trans Atlantica Argentina L1649s.

From the 1960s, there are great airside shots of the British Eagle fleet, a snowbound Heathrow in the winter of 1963, Cubana and Trans Continental Britannias, Air France and SAS CV990s, the actual crash-landing of a BOAC 707 with its nosewheel retracted, the wreckage of the BKS Ambassador crash, VC10 crew training and many other airliners, including:

Iberia Bristol Freighter. Dan Air and Skyways Yorks. KLM, SAS, FAA, Swissair & Pan Am DC7s. BEA fleet in original colour scheme. Eagle and Cunard Eagle Vikings. Air Safaris Hermes. LOT and Malev IL14s. de Long Corporation YC97. Martin 404s, Viscount and CV440 executive transports. Air France and Kuwait Viscount 700s. Nigerian VC10.
