    Hi Finno

    I think the displaced threshold is in place as there is only Tutor's and other small aircraft there now. As they don't need the full length of the runway they just use half of it.

    I think there is some reason to do with fire and crash cover as well but I'm not 100% sure.

    Why did they feel it needed repainting in a shade of green that appears to have come from the "Jasper Conran at war" chart?
    Or have I missed the historical significance of Peppermint Green?

    That is not a displaced threshold, or if it is theyve changed the markings since I was in!!!!

    Do you know why they changed the colour of the control tower? Or did it just need a repaint??

    I did ask at the station when I was there but nobody seemed to know, some of the other buildings had been re-painted too.
