Maybe one of the smallest airport buildings worldwide? From left to right: control tower, fire station, departure, arrival and baggage reclaim. No fences! For boarding everybody have to walk over the beach to the aircraft.
G-BVVK See the comparison: Beach to small aircraft. The Twin Otter is ready for take off back to Glasgow and taxiing now to the beginning of the beach. Note the really great clouds in background. Lovely but crazy airport. (more of G-BVVK)
G-BVVK / Really exotic airport on the "Outer Hebrides". BARRA is the only one Beach-Airport worldwide, which has an scheduled daily flight. Just arrived from BEB (Benbecula) and in a few minutes ready for departure back to GLA on this sunny morning. (more of G-BVVK)
