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