Shoreham Aerodrome, known today as Shoreham Airport, was the birthplace of Aeronautical Heritage in the South East of England. There have been many a famous aviator flying to and from Shoreham's grass but this story tells about the less well known characters that have made Shoreham the well respected airport that it is today.
Harold Piffard, the first person to fly a heavier-than-air powered machine over Sussex created local public interest in flying, and Cecil and Eric Pashley, the two brothers who put Shoreham on the aviation map. Fred, George and Blossom Miles, the family that kept Shoreham operational in those lean years immediately after the Second World War.
