Trident at Turnhouse -1978
Trident at Turnhouse -1978
In those halcyon days before terrorists and airport security prevented anybody getting anywhere near an aircraft. I don't remember exactly where we were, but not far from the coordinates given. This was the 'new' terminal, built in 1977, which replaced the old, small terminal on the other side of the airport. British Airways flew an innovative walk-on 'Shuttle' service from Edinburgh to London. The photo was one of a series taken to obtain a cub scout's 'photographer' badge, on the theme of transport.
