Maylands Aerodrome, 1928-1940
Author: Anthony Philpot
ISBN: 0 86025 535 2
£7.95

The airstrip between Romford and Brentwood had a short career, but a profound effect on aviation today. It was the first aerodrome to offer charter flights to destinations on the East Coast and Margate; it ran the first scheduled flights to ‘London’ to Paris; and the first airmail services to Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This is the story of Edward Hillman, his coach services, his aircraft, and his pilots (including the legendary Amy Johnson). Air shows at Harold Wood and tragedies, success and failure, are all here.

64 pages, 47 photographs, 17 line drawings, 1 map
