Next month, Liverpool Airport will celebrate its 75th anniversary. While hundreds of people will be travelling to the airport on June 28th and June 29th, convenient free transportation to the airport is being offered by the Mariott Liverpool Airport Hotel.

Over the celebratory weekend, visitors can view a Dragod Rapide vintage aircraft. The plane has many features in common with the De Havilland Dragon, which made the first flight from Speke to the Isle of Man in 1933. Those who looked to the skies of Liverpool in the 40’s, 50’s or 60’s will be happy to see the De Havilland Dove, an aircraft with eight seats that was popular at that time. The Dove will be giving visitors pleasure flights over the weekend.

Spitfires, Hurricanes and a Dakota DC3 will be visible in the skies above the airport over the weekend as the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight plans to participate in the special event and will conduct a fly past on June 29th.

Vintage busses will be available to take visitors from Liverpool city to the airport once known as Speke Airport. The busses will be provided by the Mariott Liverpool Airport Hotel.

In addition, the Mariott will be arranging a special dinner to mark the anniversary and providing people with access to the same balcony from which fans of the Beatles awaited their return in 1964 from America.
