Photographer: David Westwood

October 2016 Updates

This month has brought a healthy number of additions to the archives, two-thirds of which are from David Westwood with his collection of photos mostly from the early 90’s.

The resident plane-spotters got some revenge by spotting the birdie-spotters that descended on Sumburgh Airport hoping to catch a glimpse of a rare Siberian Accentor.

Many thanks to everybody again for their contributions this month, a nice mix of old and new.

  • S-61 G-BEWL is a new addition from David Westwood taken only a few weeks before it ditched beside the Brent Spar installation in July 1990.
  • It is the first time an Indonesian registered aircraft has appeared on the archives thanks to the Heavylift PK-PLV, also photographed by David Westwood.
  • A great photograph by Dave Joy and submitted by Ronnie Robertson showed a Blackburn Beverley (XM111) parked up at Sumburgh (Probably late 60’s).
  • Another unusual addition was of a Quest Kodiak 100 (N119KQ) photographed by Daniel Meadows. Another first for the archives.
  • New photo additions for October

    Added 27 photographs of planes in October.
