    These images take me back especially as there was only one Lagos Airport then. In 1969,I flew aboard a Nigeria Airways F27 from Lagos – Ibadan to attend a secondary school interview at GCI. I remember seeing anti aircraft guns, Mig 15s and Iluyshin 28 Beagles at the airport.

    Any memories of Nigerian aviation guys?

    Thanks. Aviation in nigeria goes back to the 1920s, when BOAC landed in Kano. At the time Kano was a very important city in Nigeria politically and economically speaking, perhaps more than Lagos.
