Simulator of a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

Flight simulator. View of the flight deck of a modern flight simulator. This is an exact replica of the flight deck of a Boeing 747-400 'Jumbo Jet'. All of the controls and instruments work exactly as on the real aircraft. A computer generated vision system can show almost any airport (here it is runway 28 Left at London Heathrow). The simulator is mounted on hydraulic legs that work with the vision system to replicate the forces felt by pilots during flight, including acceleration and braking as well as urning and vertical forces. The simulator is used to train pilots to fly the aircraft, to practice emergency situations and to conduct twice-yearly proficiency checks. Photographed courtesy of British Airways Flight Training.

Heston Aerodrome c.1930s AFL03_aerofilms_c19981

Heston Aerodrome, Hounslow, Middlesex. The control tower (centre) may have been the first purpose-built example and became the model for this class of building. Between 1931 and 1937 Heston Airport was operated as a commercial airport by Airwork Ltd (whose logo appears on the the Customs House and aircraft), after which it was taken over by the Air Ministry. It was used as a fighter base during wartime, but Heathrow was preferred as the site for a commercial airport and the aerodrome was closed in 1947. Aerofilms Collection (see Links).

Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.
