Hornet Moth returns to Manchester Airport 75 years on
The first plane to land at Manchester Airport, the de Havilland Hornet Moth, has repeated the trip to mark 75 years since that notable day.
Back in May 1937 the aircraft was meant to land at the nearby Barton Aerodrome, but bad weather forced it to touch down at Ringway Airport which was still under construction.
Ringway eventually changed its name to Manchester, and is now one of the busiest airports in Europe.
Peter Menzies, son of pilot Duncan Menzies who landed the plane 75 years ago, was on board the anniversary flight.
