PICTURES: Airport control tower is kitted out

airport control tower 2015 02 SHGContractors have begun installing equipment in the air traffic control tower at St Helena’s first airport.

Officials and councillors were shown into the building as part of a tour on 13 February 2015, to view progress on the project. They also viewed the terminal building, including the first-floor restaurant area, and watched a paving machine in use on the runway.

They visited Bradleys to see the workers’ camp and the site of radio direction-finding equipment that will guide aircraft to the island, before being taken down the airport access road to see work in Rupert’s Valley, and watch the offloading of the supply vessel NP Glory 4.
