The Control Tower, RAF Linton-on-Ouse




Description

This picture shows the various developments in control tower design over 65 years. The steel and glass construction in the centre is the modern control tower from which airfield movements are controlled on this busy training airbase. The larger brick building at the extreme right is an older section now housing air traffic control and their radar approach. The smaller section of brick building sandwiched between the two, from which the passage-way to the modern tower protrudes, is part of the original 1937 tower.

Location

RAF Linton-on-Ouse, North Yorkshire, England. May 2004.
