Submission of this photograph does NOT infer the photographer's support for Scottish nationalism, the YES campaign or the views expressed in the "Yes Scotland" Shared Description. Nor is it intended in any way to reflect the views of the Airport's owners Argyll & Bute Council, their staff or the staff at the airport. ALL my YES photographs are for record only.
Yes Scotland 2014
Over one million people signed a declaration which reads:

"I believe it is fundamentally better for us all, if decisions about Scotland's future are taken by the people who care most about Scotland, that is, by the people of Scotland.
Being independent means Scotland's future will be in Scotland's hands.
There is no doubt that Scotland has great potential. We are blessed with talent, resources and creativity. We have the opportunity to make our nation a better place to live, for this and future generations. We can build a greener, fairer and more prosperous society that is stronger and more successful than it is today.
I want a Scotland that speaks with her own voice and makes her own unique contribution to the world: a Scotland that stands alongside the other nations on these isles, as an independent nation."

Signs, flags and other visible signs of support for the movement became widespread in the run up to the Referendum on 18th September 2014.
Oban Airport (North Connel)
Completed in the early months of World War 2 and originally known as RAF Connel Ferry, the airfield initially served as both an emergency landing ground and an annex to the Oban flying boat base. In January 1944, it became an air ammunition park but continued to receive aircraft until the RAF departed on 16 October 1945. Purchased by Oban Burgh Council in 1967, commercial flights were operated by Loganair for a few months between Oban, Glasgow and Mull. However, for much of the past 45 years, the airfield has been the preserve of private pilots and the Connel Flying Club.
Following studies initiated in 1999, Argyll & Bute Council secured funding in 2005 and over the following years spend some £9 million resurfacing the main runway at Connel, constructing new passenger facilities and a new control tower and upgrading the airfields on Colonsay and Coll. Today in mid-2012, Hebridean Air Services LinkExternal link provide regular week-day flights from Connel to Colonsay, Islay, Tiree and Coll.
The airport is situated to the north of Connel Bridge, just beyond the village of North Connel and off the A85 – signposted Oban Airport (North Connel). The airport’s web site may be found: LinkExternal link and its Facebook page on:LinkExternal link
