The day started so well. Was going to enjoy the scenery...

The weather became more typical of a Scottish autumn day. 'Dreich' as the locals would call it

I'm sure I was VFR...

Good thing it started to clear, Barra doesn't have an ILS or any other radio marker, just some runway marker posts

Anyone want to build some sand castles whilst waiting for their luggage?
(note the GSX crew shuttle bus sent for a crew of just 3 on the DHC-6-300).

Very cool shots of a neat "airport".


Thanks!

"The airport is unique, reputed to be the only beach runway in the world to handle scheduled airline services."

Great set of shots


Thanks guys!

Not your typical beautiful vista screenshots.
Flying isn't always in perfect weather and that was the case here as I was considerably buffeted around.

Nice, F737NG. Not only did you beat the weather, you timed the tide. Either very good or very lucky. Thanks for an interesting trip.


Born lucky... B)

Thanks!

Very nice shots and the meaning of the word "dreich" immediately reveals  itself just by looking at it.

 

Thanks.

I do like it when words in another language carry across to convey their meaning. Sometimes I find them better than the English equivalent!
