Gibraltar Airport and La Línea de La Concepción


Panoramic view from the entrance area to the Great Siege Tunnels in N direction to the Gibraltar International Airport and to the town of La Línea de La Concepción on the Spanish side of the border. At the time the image was taken, all road and pedestrian traffic into and out of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar had to cross the runway. However, a bypass (visible near the right end of the runway) was close to completion.
