Variety of traffic at Sumburgh Airport

This morning (Monday) was much busier of late at Sumburgh Airport with a variety of aircraft coming and going.

Ronnie Robertson’s photograph, taken just before 1pm, shows a total of nine aircraft, something not seen since the coronavirus lockdown started.

The green aircraft second from left is a De Havilland Canada Dash 8-300 over from Ålesund in Norway, believed to be bringing in a change crew for an oil vessel.

Also parked up are four Loganair planes, the Sumburgh coastguard rescue helicopter and in the background three Babcock oil-related helicopters.
