    C5 at Heathrow

    Does anybody remember this shop. It was around in the mid 80's on the north side. I don't think it lasted long though.

    Yes, didn't it later move to a location in West Drayton?
    I think it lasted in to the 90s...

    I think they moved to be one of these shops. It is just coincidence that I moved to the area just as they closed...

    It can't be a Galaxy...everyone, or at least all serious aeroplane students...know it's written C-5.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    C5 as in Sinclair? I do recall it but at West Drayton I thought? How time flies.

    I remember it well, I think it traded under a couple of names in the 80's. It was the only place that had a 'rumours board'. the net and flight radar would have blown our minds back then. This was not related to the West Drayton shop, which is still there. I think 'C5' was buzdozed to build the current visitors centre area and offices?
