DOZENS of people associated with the former Ipswich Airport took a flight down memory lane at a reunion.

The Ipswich Airport Association staged its third get-together since the airport closed 12 years ago.

The event was held at the Ipswich Transport Museum on Saturday for past employees, pilots and aviation enthusiasts and featured a display of memorabilia and photos.

It also gave everyone a chance to find out what their old acquaintances were up to now.

“They were partly reminiscing and partly catching up. We are hoping to do it again next year as it was a success.”
