1988 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Unsettled weather conditions reduced the number of winter and spring sorties, but useful cover was obtained in NE Perth and some intensive photography of industrial monuments in central Scotland and Dundee was undertaken. The summer programme was also marked by a volatile weather pattern. Although flying was arduous, the unusual soil conditions produced a remarkable harvest of cropmarks - faintly visible but of considerable significance in their widespread distribution. A high percentage of these were hitherto unrecorded.

The joint Catalogue of aerial photographs for 1984—5 was published in September.
