Should Heathrow Name Be Changed To Churchill Airport? PDF Print E-mail


The famed British airport first opened as Great West Aerodrome in 1925. It had been a wheat field in the small town of Heathrow near London, thus the name. However, through the years since, suggestions have urged the government to name airport in honor of wartime prime minister Winston Churchill.

Other historic leaders have major airports named after them. They include  Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, two Kennedys, Charles De Gaulle, Louis Armstrong, John Wayne, Bob Hope, John Lennon and others. Hmmm. Wonder when will someone suggest the Donald Trump International Airport?
