The Aberdeen Airport served as the airfield during the Second World War. It served as a place for the country’s fighters to protect the people from the German bombing raids. Several monumental WWII events were witnessed by this airport. When plans to extend the airport’s runway began, the horrors of the WWII were unveiled. As of now, 2 ordinances from the said war were unearthed. The taxiway of the airport was also said to be an old bomb dump. These are among the reasons why there is a delay in the construction of the runway extension.
