Steve Balfour has sent me these three photos of East Midlands ATC.
“Here’s 3 pictures of EGNX. The outside shot is a scan from a postcard of the original terminal and control tower. No idea of the date, but early 1970s I think. The 2 internal shots show the original VCR in February 1976, when I was an ATCA there. One shows the assistant’s desk, with Paul Whitcher, (ex-NATS 21 course), on the telephone. In the background are the desks for ADC, on the left, and APP on the right. ‘Castledon Radar’, (119.65 MHz, the year the airport opened,) was on the floor below and only manned as required. The other shot shows Paul Manning ADC, Jill Reid-Buckle, (nee Campbell, ex No. 3 Course), on APP. In the background, Pat Paterson, the radar controller, is doing a MOTNE observation.”
