  • Aaaaaahhhh....right. (smartass !! )

    OK then. For this one you're getting all the clues in one go...

    Short runway...but too short for fixed wing other than a microlight possibly.
    Originally serviced by Russian equipment..
    ...then serviced by American equipment.
    Now closed....but the routing still operates to a location very close by but somewhat lower than the airfield I'm looking for.
    ...and I go on holiday nearby.

    Question. Name the airfield, the Russian and the American equipment.

        No, miles out.

        Read the clues carefully. There is a piece of text in every one of my uploads that will help.

        • Gozo ?

          • Well done that man, Gozo it is.

            A heliport operating transfers to and from Luqa with a very short runway as the Mil 8's used to have to take a run at getting airborne. Later operated by an Italian company using a Bell 412.
            The helicopter flights folded due to high costs and low passenger loads and the route is now served from Valletta Grand Harbour to Gozo using a seaplane.

            Your turn.

            • Only a short answer to Peter: yes, I missed it, I rather thought of the Southern Netherlands, pretty much everything that comes up if you start in EDDL and then you go 100% West.

                  You have to guess correctly to do it, unless the one who should be doing it declares a free house, then it's who's the first to post.

                        • apologies - should have declared an open house if Gozo was correct. Got back from Kuala Lumpur last evening so only logged on a while ago. If EK380 has one ready then tgo for it.

                          see you at Popham sunday Brian?

                            • right then. just one rule for mine, 5 facts only and i will give you 3 now so use the remaining 2 wisely.

                              1.this particular airport is on a desert island.
                              2.the runways are made from the surface of the desert.
                              3.no commercial flights.

                              get started
