Year: 1980

The benchmark disk is located on the apron side of the old terminal building under the verandah. There is a new terminal building (first building on left) but you need to keep driving past this to get to the old building.

Note: Even though the mark is outside it may be worth letting someone know what you are doing to avoid suspicion.
