As a child in the 60's my father occasionally brought us to the airport to see the planes. We used to go everywhere over the buildings even as far as the stairway directly below the control tower at this point. Sad how security measures have reduced our freedoms. - RETRO STU
Local Aviation enthusiasts used to gather at this spot, mostly at weekends myself included, We would leave our pedal cycles at the side of the building and walk up to the level know as "The Turret" where excellent views could be had over the airfield. This happened up to approx the early 1970's - Flame1958
