Barra Airport Award Nomination

Glad to see Barra Airport getting onto a shortlist of favourite landing approaches as reported on Hebrides News Today.

It really is both a spectacular approach and a quite exhilarating landing. When you make the approach for the first time and it dawns on you that the beach is actually the landing strip it makes for a very surreal experience. Particularly if the beach is still wet from the outgoing tide.

Check out the image below (taken from the Barra Airport page on the HIAL website – hope they don’t mind) to get a flavour of what I mean.
