A SURVEY plane which is catching the interest of onlookers as it flies up and down parts of the islands will continue working in Shetland for another month.

The light aircraft, belonging to the Danish specialist aviation company Bio Flight, is scanning the islands’ power lines on behalf of the UK Government.

The aim of the UK-wide contract, which will take Bio Flight several years to complete, is to create an aerial databank which will help future repair and maintenance work.

Chief executive Mads Brandt said the company currently had five planes operating in the UK.

Bio Flight is also doing survey work for offshore wind farm projects.
