The shot was taken at the privately owned Avon stolport near Beaver Creek, CO. At the time, the approach was the steepest)FAA approved ILS in the world. GS intercept was at 15,000 MSL using a microwave approach land system. 27RM was the first DHC-7 placed in service.

Please disregard my previous post about this photo being taken at the Avon stolport. After I looked more closely I realized that the shot was in fact taken at Sardy Field as stated. Btw, the terminals at Aspen and Avon are almost identical as they were built by the same company. My apologies.
