Description

From the 1920s until the start of the 1960s and the jet airliner era, Karachi’s airport was an important staging post for flights from Europe to India, the Far East and Australia. The Royal Air Force had a depot nearby from 1920 until the end of colonial rule in 1947. Karachi assumed strategic importance in the Second World War and in the post-war period was used by BOAC for its flying boat route to India.  This illustrated history in the familiar Stenlake format tells the story by means of period photographs and detailed captions.
