The angle of descent
'Almost the last thing I did in the Air Ministry of any importance was to high-jack for Civil Aviation land on which London Airport stands under the noses of resistant Ministerial colleagues. If high jack is too strong a word I plead guilty to the lesser charge of deceiving a cabinet committee.' Lord Balfour of Inchrye, in his 1973 autobiography 'Wings over Westminster'. By using maps that show current proposals for airport expansion around Heathrow as a starting point, this project takes an oblique look at a blighted landscape, and seeks to investigate the mystery in places through which travelers have passed for centuries.
