Aerial View

Thank you to Colin Lourie for sending me this Google earth view looking down on Edinburgh Airport.  The horizontal black line that Colin has added to this image shows roughly the line of the old A9 road. The airport boundary fence ran immediately to the south of the road.

  Colin added:

"There were a few cottages to the south of the Almond beside Boathouse Bridge. These are shown by the black arrow in this picture.  Presumably the cottages were demolished when the new runway was built."

Photos

Thank you to Colin for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above and three photos, all taken at Edinburgh Airport in the 1960s.
