Blackhawks have set up a sky diving facility at Jurby Airfield over TT 2014 and they will be using this aircraft.

It has been a little while since Jurby Tower has been used as a proper Aircraft Control Tower!

Quite a topical subject at the moment with the recent severe gales and the coastal erosion that has occurred due to the storms.

I captured this image today whilst travelling from Peel of the sandy West coastline of the Island from Kirk Michael up to Jurby Head, with the evidence of coastal erosion quite prominent.

You can also see in the top left of the image the white spire of Jurby Church and on the extreme right you can make out Kirk Michael Church.

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.
