First plane to land at Glasgow Airport returns for 50th anniversary

Chamber News, Member News 3rd May 2016

The aircraft which had the honour of being the first to touch down at Glasgow Airport in May 1966 made a return as part of the airport’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

The Cherokee 6 aircraft first landed at Glasgow Airport on Sunday 1 May 1966 when it was piloted by Captain Kenneth Foster of Loganair. The all-important test flight ensured the new airport was able to pass the rigorous tests set by the then Ministry of Aviation enabling it to officially open for business on 2 May 1966.
