Renfrew Airport’s last flight departs

The last flight left Glasgow Renfrew Airport on 2 May 1966, after 33 years of commercial traffic. Before that, it had been a military airfield, to which it had reverted during the Second World War. Sadly, it didn’t go out on a high: its last flight was a short hop of less than a kilometre, to Glasgow Airport.
