On this section you will find a collection of Photo Albums that cover various subjects concerning Barton Aerodrome / City Airport. The first album is a new feature that we are developing and ultimately will hold a photo of each aircraft based at the airport – new photos will be added on a regular basis to complete the project and will then be updated as required. 

Other albums detail specific events at the airport. Next albums we are looking to add are a “Fly-in in 1983”, “Interesting Previously based Aircraft” and “Airport Visitors”.

We welcome photographs from our Members to include in this section, you can send photos to the following e-mail address :

photos@friendsofbartonaerodrome.org.uk

If you click on the “slideshow” button for each album it will then automatically take you through all the photos within the album, all you have to do is “sit back and enjoy”. If you want to look at the photos in more depth then you can just scroll through them.
