      I appreciate that there are people out there dedicating some of their precious time to scan in some old pictures for the "younger" ones among us! Thanks again and hoping to see more!

      Best regards

            I am pleased to say I came accross some of Roberts excellent pictures after a while and he has very kindly given me a couple to use including the first visit of a Concorde (Air France). The Viscount G-ARIR operated the first Edinburgh to Exeter service in 1961 just after the runway strengthening work was finished. Its great to see these pictures though - for me its like meeting up with old friends (sad I know )

                Great shots,
                And also the days when there was a spectator's terrace at Edinburgh. And who remembers the bar at the old terminal
                I don't want to die, because I don't want to end up like Anita Dobson - Frank Sidebottom, actually.
                Thank you

                  Great to see some shots from an era in aviation I missed (but would love to have seen!)

                    Against that though is the sheer quantity & variety of movements now. Its easy for me to forget standing at the old Turnhouse to wait up to two and a half hours some days for the next flight to land and then it would be yet another @~#####** BEA Vanguard or Viscount.
