In a word... No. Unfortunately almost every job to do with aviation you have to be over 18 for insurance purposes...
If you simply want to be at the airport... You could try the retail outlets... Duty Free, WHSmiths, the fast food outlets... restaurants etc.
Personally can't see you getting anything to do with aircraft themself. If you're patient, an opportunity will arise to get involved in the aviation industry.
Getting involved in a Travel and Tourism course can be a good step, thats how I got my job. Went straight from the end of my college course into a job in Dispatch.
Best of luck and if you want any more advice, PM me.

I believe the Civil Air Patrol CAP, the volunteer/Auxilliary arm of the U.S. Air Force allows 16 year old to join. Keep an eye out for internships.

I worked an internship when I was 16 at
HPN (Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY). It was unpaid and I got to do a lot of grunt work for the Environment/Noise Abatement Office. Good experience though.
