In 1976 the first Commercial Concorde flight took off, the UK’s Brotherhood of Man won Eurovision with Save your Kisses for Me, and Liverpool won the UEFA Cup for a second time. It was also the year that Steve Killick started his career at Heathrow.
Steve Killick, featured above this summer and in the late 70’s when he started, has sent through some great images from his nearly 40 years of service which we’re sharing with you. Born and bred in West Drayton, both Steve’s Dad and his grandfather worked at the airport – the latter in a company that initially helped build the runways in the 40’s!
Significantly, Steve Killick was also welcomed into the Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) on as part of The Queen’s Birthday Hnoours in 1999.
Steve features briefly in episode 2 of Britain’s Busiest Airport – Heathrow, so keep an eye out for him!
