windmills Millwall demolished at Grantley Adams Airport, Barbados

A correspondent in Barbados has reported to me that

"The the millwall at Grantly Adams, that was on the south side of the airfield near the flying club, was destroyed in March 2004, and probably without any thought to its significance.

It was knocked down to make room for a part of the RSS, The Regional Security System. This is a co-operative security service for most of the eastern Caribbean, and includes the Barbados Defense Force base adjacent to the airport. They were building a permanent hanger for aircraft storage to replace the temporary tent that has been in place for some time. The US is providing much assistance and support and material for the construction and operation as no doubt they have a large interest in the RSS."

Let's hope that Concorde G-BOAE which has been retired to this airport, is being looked after with a bit more care.
