Airport

This small aircraft sits alone at Andreas Airfield in the North of the Island.

The airfield was opened in 1941 as a Fighter Command Airfield for the RAF.

The Airfield is now operated by Andreas Gliding Club and by Microlight enthusiasts.

I have added an image of this old Control Tower before onto manxscenes.com but I liked the sky and cloud formation on this image that I took yesterday.

As you can imagine this Control Tower was a constant hive of activity during the Second World War.

This morning at 09.30hrs this British Airways Airbus A319 Aircraft landed at Ronaldsway Airport with a cargo of the Olympic Flame and its back up crew.

The images were captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens and cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
