Showing my age: I can remember walking along the top of pier 1 when there was no such thing as aircraft hijacking and airside security was minimal. Those were the days of British Air Ferries, Caledonian Airways, British United, Dan-Air etc flying Britannias, Vanguards, Viscounts and then Comets and VC10s…

And from the inside: remembering to swing the gates to international arrivals from domestic. Lacking any travellators, with the miles I used to cover in passenger handling, I was permanently fit going up and down the old LGW piers.
