Rather interesting Hendon facts
Did you know that the world’s first chartered business flight took off from Hendon en route to Dublin in June 1919? The passenger was Gordon Selfridge (of Selfridges Stores fame), who for practical reasons it seems needed to get to Dublin urgently – though in his pomp he did everything in style. His chartered de Havilland DH9 took a mere three and a quarter hours to make the trip, landing at RAF Baldonnel.
