    Default CYPRUS - Kingsfield

    A Canberra bomber flies over in salute as land rovers of 33 Field Squadron, Royal Engineers, emerge from a Beverley transport aircraft of 47 Squadron, RAF Transport Command, which landed on the 1,200 yard airstrip at Kingsfield on Dhekelia Sovereign Base

    Peter, They would be more accurate to say Kingsfield airstrip on the Eastern SBA, there was/is another strip known as Dhekalia airstrip, but its pointless telling the IWM so many wrong captions on their site.

    I always feedback corrections to them Ted but assume that they would like to cross check the accuracy before amending their captions. Thanks for the info. I shall take care of it.

    Default CYPRUS - Kingsfield

    Does anyone know anything about this airfield, IE is it ever used for anything other than gliding and parachuting?
