The Speke Aerodrome Heritage Group was originally formed in 2002 as the The Jetstream Club, a non-profit organisation focused on preserving and maintaining the fourth prototype Jetstream 41, G-JMAC. In January 2010 the Club changed it’s name to the present title to better reflect the aims and activities of the group.
After the Jetstream, several additional aircraft were subsequently acquired. These aircraft are permanently located on the apron of the elegant art deco style Speke Airport terminal building, which is now the Crowne Plaza Hotel – Liverpool South.
G-JMAC has been converted into a ‘flight simulator’ so that it is possible to ‘fly’ the aircraft from the cockpit. The Group is keen to use its aircraft to help educate people about the North-West’s aviation heritage and aviation in general.
Not owned by the Jetstream Club, De Havilland D.H.89 Dragon Rapide Full-Scale Model ‘G-ANZP’ can also be found in front of the main entrance to the hotel. (The airport apron is to the rear of the hotel).
Off the A561 south of Liverpool. At the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liverpool South, Speke Aerodrome, Liverpool.
Open Saturday and Sunday, 11.00 am to 4.00 pm.
