On my daily journey to work, I happen to pass a segment of disused airport which has been decommissioned for many years now. I believe it’s privately owned and generally used for crop growing, however, parts of the old runway surface remain.
It may be Saab’s aviation heritage drawing me in, or it may just be that it’s a stunning spot for taking the odd photo, either way, I can’t resist pulling in when the gates are left open. It’s a kind of desolate place; the surrounding land flat with few trees, and when nature blesses us with dramatic skies, it creates to perfect backdrop.
I’ve featured photos of a gorgeous 9-5 Aero taken here in the past, but not many of my 9-3. A few weeks ago, I found the gates open, and had my camera with me, so I turned the Saab onto the runway and grabbed a few photos whilst I could.
