The control tower at Edinburgh Airport has been changed to red to mark Remembrance Day.

The 57m-high tower will be red every evening until November 11 to raise awareness of the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

The airport will also play host to Poppyscotland’s photographic exhibition Unforgettable Stories in the departure lounge.

It features black-and-white images of people from across Scotland and their messages about what the poppy means to them.

David Wilson, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Operating Officer, and former member of the Parachute Regiment, said: “As an ex-serviceman the Poppyscotland appeal is a cause very close to my heart.

“Edinburgh Airport has had a great relationship with the charity for a long time and I’m delighted we can work together again to raise awareness and highlight the wonderful work Poppyscotland does.”

Colin Flinn from Poppyscotland said: “We are very grateful to Edinburgh Airport for the huge range of support they are giving to the 2013 Scottish Poppy Appeal.
