Kano Airport Air Traffic Control Tower, Nigeria, Afica, 1964

Kano Airport Air Traffic Control Tower (Nigeria, Africa)

As can be seen through the Air Traffic Control Tower window, the landscape around Kano was typical flat Africa savannah. It was characteristic of northern Nigeria with scrubby trees and sparse grasses. Arid for most of the year, but it burst into life during the Nigeria rainy season.

Not a lot to look at from the Kano Air Traffic Control Tower except the endless plains of North Nigeria, and in the 1960s usually a long wait until the next flight to Lagos was due to arrive.
