This week, a few members of the Flightradar24 team took some time during their visit to Scotland for an avgeek beach day at Barra. Flights at Barra are unique as they land and take off on the beach. Naturally, operations occur during low tide. Check out some of the photos and video from their day trip.
Departure and Arrival
Flights land on the beach, then taxi towards the terminal, disembarking passengers on the sand.
Passengers disembark on the beach and walk to the terminal.
The baggage reclamation process is generally expeditious.
The control tower at Barra hosts a Flightradar24 ADS-B receiver.
