Another image from the roll of film that’s been lurking in my Nikon F3HP since last October’s trip to Scotland!

This is the control tower at the former Royal Air Force (RAF) station at Wigtown in Scotland. The station was active between 1941 and 1945 and from 1947 to 1948, mainly in a training role, but a number of operational squadrons also visited the station, the last being the Bomber Command Trials Unit flying Avro Lancasters.

I still like to think of myself as the former but often feel more the latter these days…
