Flying to Barra

Our plane waits at the gate. There were 6 others waiting to board the plane with us. We wait while the plane is loaded with the days mail and newspapers.

From our seats you could see into the cockpit. Our pilot handed out photocopied maps showing the flightpath and answers to frequently asked questions about the flight and plane.

A plane landing at the airport. Yes it lands on the Beach! Flights are actually scheduled so that the plane lands at low tide, otherwise the runway is under water!

Tiffany disembarks the plane.

The plane waits at the “gate” for the next set of passangers.

From the airport we took the island shuttle which was operated by Mr. MacNeil.
