A SPECIAL reception was held in Antrim on Saturday to mark the 60th anniversary of Northern Ireland’s worst aviation disaster.

Twenty-seven people were killed when a domestic flight from London-Northolt Airport crashed at then then Nutts Corner airport, with four crew and 31 passengers on board.

Among those attending the reception hosted by the Mayor and Deputy of Antrim, were families of some of those who died in the air crash.
