May there always be such a convenient field for airmen in difficulties .
That's what I thought. As you know there is a dearth of such fields in Cornwall, and the "hedges" which surround them sneakily conceal large chunks of granite under the vegetation, Doing my PPL one day my instructor asked me to select a field for a forced landing if the engine suddenly failed, I had a quick scan around and pointed out a field which I thought we might just reach and get into. He said it might be a possibility but perhaps the golf course immediately below us would have been a better choice!

Incidentally that field looks bigger than St Just aerodrome where I used to fly from!
