Mem­o­ries of Unst

Pilot - - FLIGHT TEST -

The con­fir­ma­tion in the Spring edi­tion of Pi­lot that Unst Air­port has now closed brought back fond mem­o­ries of a trip I made into that air­port.

The ar­ti­cle men­tioned the fly­ing con­tracted to Chevron, and it was ac­tu­ally Bry­mon Airways that op­er­ated the Dash 7. I was for­tu­nate enough to be granted su­per­nu­mer­ary crew sta­tus on a re­turn trip from Aberdeen to Unst, where the run­way was a mere 640m long.

The pho­tos be­low show why the skip­per said, “There’s no room for airy-fairy land­ings here!” Mike Car­riv­ick, Wok­ing­ham
