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

I was on holiday last week, staying at a hotel some miles north of Famagusta in Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and waqs amused to see that the BBC Weather App came up with Kingsfield Airstrip, in the Eastern SBA in the south as the nearest weather source
