COMING EASTER 2015 - Our latest title looks at the history and rapid growth of the Football Charter. We will see how these developed over the decades and how it eventually became a busy time for the airport. It was also an interesting time for the enthusiast, with the arrival of many unusual airlines and rare aircraft, and the increased use of the executive jet by the wealthier to travel to the match in great style!
The book covering 1990-2000 includes an in-depth look at special events at Manchester, such as Euro '96 and the mass exodus to Barcelona of Manchester United fans for the Champions League Final in May 1999.
Featured are many wonderful photographs by renowned photographers such as Nik French, Geoff Ball, Denis Norman, Michael Oldham, Paul Rowland and Lee Collins. Although only 25 years ago, many of the aircraft featured are long consigned to history!
The narrative also incorporates details of the matches played, and the history and the background of the events and the visiting aircraft.
As well as our publications, we can offer an extensive range of MOVEMENT data CDs, which span the years 1960-2010, including a disc that lists every single diversion into Manchester during this period. (See samples below)
