For a short time in the mid 1920s, Belfast was at the forefront of the development of civil air transport in the British Isles. Spurred on by successful commercial flights to the RAF airfield at Aldergrove in 1921-23, and in a far-sighted move, Belfast City Council established the first municipal aerodrome in the UK - at Malone, within the city boundary. A fledgling air company, Northern Airlines, was encouraged to set up services to Liverpool, Glasgow, Carlisle and Stranraer. This book is a tribute to the pioneers and innovators whose names deserve to be remembered.
