December 13, 1937. Nairobi Airport: This is a circular field at altitude 5500 feet, with two narrow runways. It is none too large A fence and ditch have been constructed around the field to prevent wild game from coming onto the field. It is a common occurrence while gliding into a landing to see wildebeeste, zebra, and hartebeeste passing just below the wings within a few hundred feet of the airport boundary Two months before this picture was taken a wild lion was shot on the airport. 7000 feet. 12:32.
