    Default SASKATCHEWAN - Weyburn / BCATP #8 SFTS

    Weyburn still has an amazing amount of buildings present. It was home to Harvards and Cessna Cranes. Several hangars remain as well as H barracks, gun butt and mt shed as well as some smaller buildings.

    Having just checked the Nav Canada Flight Suplement which lists all Canadian airfields the only Weyburn is in Saskatchewan. It has airport code CJE3 and is still active with runways 06/24 3000x75m and 12/30 4000x75m.

    There is no other Weyburn airfield listed not even in the list of disused / abandoned airfields so if there was a Weyburn airfield in Manitoba it has now disapeared to the point it is no longer visible from the air. This is the criteria for coming off the Nav Canada list of abandoned airfields.

    I thought the runway length was bit too long so I did some research. The runway is 4000 feet long, not 4000 metres. Blimey NAV Canada have you learnt nothing since the Gimli glider!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Canberra my fault rather than Nav Canada. I'm so used to looking at UK / European info where runway dimensions are in meters I forgot to check the units in the Canada Flight Supplement - should have remembered from when I was out there. Oops
