1970s era 16mm footage of planes on the runway at Sumburgh airport and a short clip of a truck driving through Scalloway.

Film-maker: Jim Smith MBE

Donated by the Hepburn / Flaws families.

Lovely footage! I wonder if the plane is the one which did an airlift of ponies from Shetland to Norway? This would link in with the footage of the stock truck leaving Berry farm.
