I'm sure I remember 'racing' with other tearaway teenagers on Saturday nights in the late 60's from Braintree to STN to get a cup of coffee in the airport caff, in clapped out Minis and Anglias and even a Rover 90 or 100 (headlight in the middle?) and such. This would have been after the pubs had shut - of course. Am I correct in remembering that when you turned off the A120 you had to cross the runway as the terminal in those days was on the other side. Many years later I was based there with the late Gill Airways. Happy Days.
