Speke Airport

From time to time, whenever I have some time between appointments and am in the area, I stop off at Liverpool John Lennon Airport – formerly Speke Airport. I love to park up near to the end of the runway just to watch the planes take-off and land. I have always had a fascination for aircraft even if I have never come to terms with how the hell such heavy lumps of metal can stay in the air at such relatively slow speeds. I think my fascination started when, as a child back in the 1960s, my grandfather would take me to the old Speke Airport to watch the planes land.
