    That tower was repaced again by a green wooden contraption that was replaced by the current one.

    Did'nt get a pic but remember it very well !!

    The De Havilland club used Chetwynd a few years back as a stopover, it was good to see Chipmunks, T Moths and lots more use the airfield !!

    The old tower looks like it is the body removed from a Karrier Bantam Mk V Runway Control 'Caravan'.

    Transmitters will be removed shortly and good rumour that the tower will go soon as we have changed our operating system and the tower is no longer manned for night flying.

    Hi Smoggieboy
    Does that mean Stud 8 is no longer going to be used, as the tower is now not used, or is it going to be used as the location ?, by the way is that the chippy by the carpark???
    cheers ian
