London City Airport marks 30th anniversary

London City Airport has marked its 30th anniversary with an exhibition of past photography and the publication of images portraying how the airport will look after completion of its £400 million redevelopment.
London City Airport: 30 Years in Photographs can be seen in Jubilee Place in Canary Wharf from October 26 until November 7. It features photographs by Ben Walsh, Andrew Holt and Vic Abbott, an air traffic control engineer who has worked at the airport since 1987.
Visuals of how City Airport will look in the future are based on plans to provide capacity for a further two million passengers per year by 2025. A record four and a half million passengers used the airport in 2016.
Another novel 30th anniversary celebration is the creation of The East End Flyer, an ‘80s inspired cocktail of Beefeater Gin, peach schnapps and Southern Comfort created by Peter Dorelli, former head bartender at The American Bar at London’s Savoy hotel in London.
The cocktail also includes pink grapefruit Juice, cranberry juice and grenadine to provide ‘a little extra East End sweetness’ with sourness and complexity.
