Walney Island Scenery. Barrow/Walney Island Airport (IATA: BWF, ICAO: EGNL) is located on Walney Island, 1.5 nm (2.8 km; 1.7 miles) northwest of the center of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England, UK. The airport is owned by BAE Systems, who operate private communication flights to various locations across the United Kingdom. The Lakes Gliding Club also operates out of the airport when flying conditions are favourable. Barrow/Walney Island airport was opened during World War II, though the site had been used as an airship station since World War I. Three runways were constructed, laid out in a triangular arrangement, for use by the based Royal Air Force flying units. The airfield was left disused after WWII, and was sold on in 1959 to Vickers, the company that owned Barrow shipyard at the time. The triangular shaped runway system can be seen from 140 miles above sea level. By Gordon Barnes.
