I lived on the Lyndhurst 1960-72, you will recall the estate was on the approach to what was then Elmdon Airport, living in a tower block, as I was, you were very close to the action when a plane passed over, particularly if you were on the roof hanging out washing in the roof-top drying area - an activity I was regularly press-ganged into service with my mum. The planes were so low you could see passengers enjoying a last minute drink before landingChiffon comp.jpg.
