Dennis Stone: A 'Life At The Airport' (PHOTOS)

Dennis Stone, Heathrow's longest-serving resident photographer, published a book of photographs of celebrities, politicians, and world leaders taken at the airport over a 64-year period.

Stone began his tenure at 14 as a messenger boy at British Overseas Airways Corporation (an early version of British Airways--check out their old uniforms here).

As a thank you to Stone, Heathrow published 5,000 copies of his book, "A Life At The Airport: A Heathrow Photographer."

Now 78, Stone said of his time at the airport, "I feel very fortunate to have worked at Heathrow for the past 64 years carrying out a job I see less as work and more as a passion. I have made many good friends here and been privy to a world that has allowed me to capture unique moments and events. "

Below, check out a slideshow of some of Stone's favorite pictures, captured over the years, along with his comments on each shot.
