A friend and I were discussing the old Croydon Airport and I mentioned that was where Neville Chamberlain landed with the Angle-German Declaration. I understood that he left his aircraft with one hand clutching his umbrella and the other the Anglo-German declaration, proclaiming the famous words "peace in our time".
My friend disputed this and said the airport he landed was Heston in North London. He said people presumed this as Croydon was the London airport at the time.I have checked this on the Web and both airports are mentioned in various articles but it could only be one of them where he stated the famous words.
Is it possible to confirm which site he actually landed.
