To celebrate 100 years of our sponsor British Airways, we would like to take a moment to mark 100 years of the iconic airline and the West Pier Trust. Many flights operated with separate class cabins; the Boeing 707 increased the number of passengers a flight could carry and by 1969 staff were checking passengers onto flights with computers.

This gave birth to the Royal Naval Flying School at Eastchurch, Kent on December 1911. The school was eventually integrated into the Royal Flying Corps forming a new airplane squadron.
