nearest major international airport is Cardiff Wales Airport (formally known as
Rhoose Airport). In recent years it has become a major player in U.K. air travel
with over 50 direct destinations and over 400 worldwide connecting flights.
If you are interested in local aviation history, then this link is just up your street.
It is run by Gary Hillard who used to work for Cambrian Airways at Rhoose Airport.
It is an Aladdin's Cave of information on the civil aviation scene in South Wales from the 1950s onward. The site is teaming with images of those long forgotten airliners and will certainly bring a lump to the throat of most enthusiasts.
