Three years itīs not bad at all!!

The thing is that the whole runway at RAF Stanley was re-surfaced with AM2... thatīs something like 6000 fts long, plus aprons and taxing ways... meaning a lot a matting!!

Did you know that tha FAA (Argentinean Air Force) had used the very same AM2 10 years before at Hookerīs Point runway? In fact some of the argentinean AM2 had been left behind when Pembrokeīs runway was opened in 1978 and they were used during the time of BAM Malvinas to extend the apron area, and create a few acceses to the runway from the sides of it.

I always wondered wether that matting had also been used by the RE in their Aug/Sept 82 work...
