Thanks for visiting the North West Air News website. Our website mostly concentrates on Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Our menu will lead you to a host of pages covering all the latest news from the ever-expanding Liverpool John Lennon Airport, including development news and pictures plus details of new and existing services. There is also a full residents list, with a complete run-down of all based aircraft at Liverpool and helpful hints on where to view aircraft.

If you want to have your say about aviation in the North West (or further afield) or if you just want to see what other people are talking about then be sure to visit the NWAN Forum -it is full of up-to-date info, and there is even a nostalgia section for those with fond memories and photos that they would like to share. To post, the Forum requires registration (free). Please note that, when registering, certain unconvincing web-based e-mail addresses (Hotmail etc, etc) may well be automatically rejected to stop attempted spam/trolling, following a spate of such attacks. Many thanks to Paul Derbyshire of DerboSoft (Flight Simulator Add-Ons) for setting up the forum, following the demise of our previous one.

You will also find many pages of interest in our "Classics" section, featuring images of aircraft at Liverpool from days gone by, with some really "classic" shots to bring the memories flooding back! There is also a "Special Features" section with a variety of different events/features from more recent times.

Please note that this website is in no way connected with Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Please visit their official website at for news and flight information.
