Former terminal building, George Best Belfast City Airport
Former terminal building, George Best Belfast City Airport
The aerodrome dates back to 1937 when it was built as part of the Short Brothers and Harland Limited aircraft factory. The present airport opened to scheduled passenger flights in 1983 as Belfast Harbour Airport. The terminal buildings were temporary ones – later extended and improved as shown. Today’s terminal J3776 : Airside of terminal, George Best Belfast City Airport (further from the nearby houses and thus a bit quieter) opened in 2001. Note: this photograph appears as matter of record only and should not be interpreted as expressing any opinion, for or against, the proposed runway extension and increase on the limits on flying hours and passengers handled.
Snow, east Belfast - 3 December 2010 :: J3774


Belfast had escaped the heavy snowfalls which affected the west and much of GB. There was a fall overnight and on the morning of 3 December. The unpleasantly cold north/north east wind seemed to have gone making it feel much warmer than earlier in the week.
