A mystery is solved

Thanks to Everett Garson from Eday.  I have a vague memory of landing at what I thought was a beach in Eday, probably in the early 70’s.  I have asked many people if there was a beach strip but the answer was inevitably no 🙂

Until the golden islander arrived where I had good fortune to meet Everett at the airport.  Through having a chat with him, I discovered that I wasn’t going mad as he told me that while the runway was being done up in the early 70’s, the loch was drained and became a temporary airfield for the islanders.

Not only did he tell me about it, he gave me a photo showing an Islander aircraft on/in the loch.

Many thanks for letting me share.

Thanks for reading

Neil 😉
