Photo Comment

The apron in front of the domestic airline hangars was an exceptional place for aircraft photography. There were no fences, the taxiway serving the main east-west runway passed close and there was shelter from sun and rain. When the north-south runway was fully extended in 1972, passing traffic was only on days when the winds demanded it. Soon after the apron became a restricted area.
