|for your trip. The picture show inside will explain this further.
Our flight begins! The entire ramp is meant to represent a "round trip" on an aircraft - that finally lands down by the wharf and the Junker. On the blue charts (two on the first ramp and two on the last one) you will find details of how an aircraft ascends and navigates and what instruments it uses to help it land in the right place.
Up until 1960, morse signals were used in communication between aircraft and ground control. This was how the pilot received reports on the weather and other conditions. Here, you can see a flight control station from the same period. We also have a Mobile Instrument Landing System from World War II, the first of its kind in Norway. The system made it possible for aircraft to locate the airport in the dark and in bad weather.
At the Airport - and in the Control Tower
Among parked tailplanes you receive a brief overview of the development of communications this century. Here, you will also get to know more about how the airport weather service works. This service is extremely important to air safety. The old Bodø Airport control tower has been relocated to the top of the museum.
