Water, No Air
The sight of an Islander aircraft crossing Hamna Voe, Papa Stour, and landing nearby during the next few weeks will not be possible. The horizontal water-mill, pictured here, depended on a constant supply of water; the airstrip on the island has been damaged by it. The details are available through Shetland News, but for those keen to make the flight for sight-seeing purposes there is a a fine series of images and a 13-minute video at Papa Stour & Foula by Plane presented by Modor-Dye. Take the opportunity now - for the next plane will be some time coming.
