STOPPING THE ROT CONFERENCE 2003
What should we do with historic aviation buildings is a question that is
asked from time to time. As part of its contribution to the 100 Years of
Flight celebrations, the British Aviation Preservation Council is organising
a conference at Gatwick on the
RE-USE OF HISTORIC AVIATION BUILDINGS.
Fokker F.XII of the first British Airways Ltd at the Beehive, Gatwick. The
conference is in the new BT building next to the Beehive.
The Conference at Gatwick will examine a number of case studies. Most of the

building next to the Beehive at Gatwick and will include:- The Gatwick
