Barra Airport, mid 1970s

The famous airport where the plane lands on the beach. I think this is 1976-79 when the plane was a Trislander and before Loganair were painted up as a BA franchise. It's still Loganair but now a Flybe franchise with Twin Otters.


That's me on the left, my brother on the right. We had not come on the plane but had come on a yacht moored at Castlebay and we got the post bus out to see the spectacle of the plane landing on the beach.
