Manchester Airport Visitor Park

The very popular Manchester Airport’s Runway Visitor Park has re-opened.

The attraction has worked with organisers such as the Aviation Society, Manchester Historic Vehicle Club and Cheadle Rotary Club to put together a full summer programme.

Dates to look out for include a military vehicles exhibition on Sunday 27 June and the Manchester Historic Vehicle Club’s prestigious Annual Concours show on Sunday 4 July, with a range of vintage cars on display competing for prizes.

Sunday 25 July is an important date in the Runway Visitor Park’s diary for aviation fans, meanwhile, as the venue welcomes back the Aviation Society’s Airport Memorabilia Fair. The event will have traders and exhibitors from all over the UK and Europe attending, bringing with them an impressive range of aviation memorabilia.

Major aviation book and magazine publishers, authors and model aircraft producers will also be in attendance, whilst the show’s more unusual exhibits will include a display of aircraft parts of all shapes and sizes which have been turned into furniture and household ornaments, many of which will be available to purchase.

Outside the hangar, there will be live music from local band Loose Change Buskers and open-top buses will be strategically positioned in the park for photographers to get the best possible views of aircraft arriving and departing.

The range of summer events will accompany the park’s hugely successful aircraft tours, which give aviation enthusiasts the chance to explore classic planes and sit behind the controls of the iconic Concorde, among others.

The tours had been halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic but have resumed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
