The perfectly preserved control tower at the original Sharjah airport - Al Mahatah - in downtown Sharjah. Al Mahatah was setup by the British in 1930 as a rest stop for Imperial Airways flights - the motel block is also still preserved here. The RAF used the airport extensively in World War Two. Since then a main road has been built over the runway and aircraft traffic has moved to SHJ. Great to see this new museum proudly remembering the past.
