Edinburgh Airport Retrospective - September 2006.

Photographs: Martin Krupka www.airplane-pictures.net/

A talk by Keith McCloskey on his new book, Edinburgh Airport – A History. Keith’s detailed history charted the growth of Edinburgh Airport from its early days, through RAF Turnhouse; the creation of a civil airport after WWII and as the base for the Ferranti Flying Unit, to the thriving airport that it is today. Keith’s talk was supported by a showing by Colin Lourie of many of the photographs he took at Turnhouse and many other airfields in the 1960s and by Len Houston relating his days as the Ferranti Flying Unit’s Chief Test Pilot.

Visiting speaker Alan Davie came to the Strut's April 2003 meeting with a couple of his large scale radio-controlled models.
