All were taken from outside. Images 7,8,19,20 and 21 were taken from the public viewing terrace which opens in the summer at 0900. No security problems taking pictures from there.

In photo 16, it's an interesting concept to have tall trees growing between ATC and part of the flight line!


That is the old tower, the image was taken from the new tower :grin:
