Barry Davidson sent in this article for an alternative and much earlier London City Airport, described in a Meccano Magazine from the 1930s. If you like city centre elevated circular airports with hangars accessed via aircraft elevators to take aircraft up to the manoeuvring area from the terminal – this is for you. Of course if built it would now be overhead the Eurostar Terminal – useful.

of course it may be an idea whose time has come
