Special instructions: for Monday. C526 (Print only): Aerial photo taken in 1947, looking easterly over Catalina airport (print from Santa Catalina Island Co). 50: From southwest, as seen from spur of Six Shooter Ridge, 2300-foot runway forms horizon. Black line, center of pix, is asphalt highway to Avalon, 10 miles distant. 86: Landing strip seen from its southwest end. Because of high center over former mountain, far end of airport can't be seen from here. At right background, tower and loading area. 66: Southwest end of runway drops off like this, toward Buffalo Springs. Background, left, is ocean, 1850 feet lower than field. 95: Buffalo herd loafing on hillside south of airport's hangar (center, large bldg) and tower (skyline, left). 43: This buffalo and his pals have left deep hoofprints in asphalt pavement around airport's waiting room. At times in past, herd has had to be shooed off airport so plane could land. 32: Lawn and flowers planted around airport buildings get rooted up by wild pigs like this Catalina wild pig galloping uphill. 40: Disturbed by visitor, this eagle flaps away near airport. 434: NOT at Catalina's airport, ever, are there jackrabbits like this one, bane of mainland airports. NO RABBITS on island. This one at Long Beach airport. 16: At northeast end of airport, mountainside drops roof-steep to jumble of rocks and brush, all the way down to beach one mile distant. Air sock whips at corner of field; security officer Hollis Jones at right. 59: Airport's tower and waiting room, lonely and isolated; security officer walking left center. 47: Interior of waiting room luxurious and snug, with big fireplace. 61: Barbed wire on steel stakes runs around airport, but buffaloes sometimes push them down. 80: Security Officer Hollis Jones walking under wind sock at airport's northeast corner. 81: Jones standing under windsock".
