Yes it's said to be the busiest single runway airport in the world.Not strictly true as the old taxiway 1 has been used a parallel emergency runway for 20 years or more now........



The racecourse shut back in the 1930s and they only held a couple of grand nationals there,but a good claim to fame and not one I'd thought about.

Ohh, England, with your hideously overcrowded single runway airports...

If I were ever to come into a little extra cash, I've always wanted to fly BA1/2. It's not as cool as Concorde would have been, but the idea of flying an A319 across the Atlantic and into LCY seems to me like it would be the closest thing you could get to flying a Gulfstream and landing on an aircraft carrier.

I didn't know they were still using the old Concorde callsign/flight number.Anyway,just make sure the pilot knows where the edge is when you fly out of LCY.........

.....and it's not American,although it's correct that it was supposed to rival the Boeing 737.Another clue is that only one airline ever had them in service.

Looks like a Dassault Mercure only flown by Air Inter. The few built did last awhile.

What was unusual about the SR-71 specifically at the beginning of every flight,and why?

It took off with a small amount of fuel because a full fuel load weighted more than the air frame and if loaded with fuel it would raise the already high v2 (take off speed ) speed and stress the air frame. It would meet up with a tanker right after take off
