Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Speke, Merseyside, England

Is an international airport serving North West England. On the outbreak of World War II, the airport was operated by the RAF and known as RAF Speke. The airport is within the City of Liverpool on the banks of the estuary of the River Mersey some 6.5 nautical miles (12.0 km; 7.5 mi) south east of the city centre. The airport is named after Liverpudlian musician John Lennon of The Beatles. Scheduled domestic and European services are operated from the airport.

It home to a big milestone in my life too, on this trip I stepped inside an airport for the first time in my autistic life journey and it was a great sense of achievement.

I’m currently in the process of arranging a tour of the airport n the near feature.
