Elstree tower

elstree tower vcr

Dating from the early 60s, probably 1961, is this view of the inside of the Elstree tower visual control room, home to the London School of Flying. On the left is the controller Victor McClelland, the chap on the right is apparently one of the School’s students, Scott Crawford who seems to be having some ATC Familiarisation as he has the microphone in his hand.

Reproduced from the February 1962 issue of Aeronautics magazine and found by Barry Davidson.

Elstree ATC 1949

photo of the Elstree tower in 1949 from Tom Singfield. The “VCR” reminds us of a railway ground frame hut.
