Inverness Airport (Dalcross), 1968

This is an aerial view of Inverness Airport taken in 1968.

The site was first developed as a military airfield in 1939 and was officially opened as RAF Dalcross in 1940. Civilian operations commenced in 1947 and the airport grew very gradually after that.

British European Airways began flights to London Heathrow in the mid-1970s. This route was taken over by Dan-Air in 1983 and in the late 1980s they added services to Manchester and London Gatwick.

In addition to flights to destinations in the south of Scotland and in England, Inverness is also important in the network of Highlands and Islands airports.
