Heathrow Airport is bidding farewell to Terminal 1 on Monday after nearly five decades in operation.
The terminal which was opened by The Queen in May 1969, will see staff wave goodbye to its final passengers boarding the 9.15pm British Airways (BA0970) flight to Hanover, Germany.
That makes the former BEA airline both the first and last to operate out of this terminal.
The terminal will be closed permanently from Tuesday (June 30) - marking the end of an era.
T1 opened as the largest airport terminal in Europe and went on to handle nine million passengers at full capacity, mainly operating short haul flights.
In the last year airlines have been moving out of T1 and into T2 - The Queen's Terminal - which opened with world class facilities in June 2014 as part of a major £11 billion investment.
Recently only 17 BA flights and around 1,700 passengers a day have been using the terminal.
Its closure will make way for improved services and is being built as part of an extension to the new T2, which if a third runway is approved by the government will see T2 extended even further.
Heathrow CEO John Holland Kaye said; “The closure of Terminal 1 marks another important milestone in the transformation of Heathrow.
"Terminal 1 has served Britain well for nearly 50 years, but will soon make way for the expansion of Terminal 2, giving Britain a world class airport that we can all be proud of.”
