Sorry, not Rangoon. Too far east, and too far north.

BAMRA is correct. It is SAAF Isipingo, South Africa. Now the site of Durban's airport. You have control.

Thanks evansb, I'll have to hand back control - connection problems.

So - open house.

Shall be in Durban next month and I'll view the approach from a historical perspective now!

Flap40 has. Lockheed Burbank plant covered in camouflage netting when there was a fear of Japanese invasion.

The picture is not too hard to find, as it had gone a bit quiet just thought I would post something a little bit different.

Over to you '40.
