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.
