Skyvan at Machrihanish
Skyvan at Machrihanish
Taken in the days when there was no 'airport' at Machrihanish, but a small terminal hut just off the runway, which is so long [over 3km] that the Skyvan, coming in from the west, flew on and on and on over it until finally touching down.
Two years later this aircraft became LN-NPG [a Norwegian registration] with Busy Bee in 1975 and ended up being damaged beyond repair in Zaire after acquisition by Swala Airlines in 1984.
