Sorry, not the West Midlands, nor Antarctica.

Williams Field, McMurdo? (er ---- No, not a clever guess, Antarctica already ruled out!)

Alert? Do you mean Alert, Nunavut, Canada? The most northerly inhabited settlement in the world?



Ahem..yes, indeed, spot on Phileas Fogg is correct. Well done. CFS (Canadian Forces Station) Alert, CYLT, Ellesmere Island, located at 82.28N 62.30W.

You have control.

P.S. I've found a thread on JET BLAST for my RANT

Do not let it be said about Evansb that he is not a sensitive person...

All this time, I thought he was just living the good life out in the badlands enjoying the wildlife!

Happy Christmas

That's got to be Finningley - AKA 'Robin Hood Airport'.

Quite right Nacluv! Taken from the club 172 on departure. That was when you could still land there for a few bob - including ground services to/from terminal!

You have control.

Ah - Finningley. Fond memories of the great airshows when I was a kid; the 3-hour Nav trip in a Dominie in the jump seat as a cadet with no (or very little) cabin pressurisation; and my second XJS bought from a 2nd-hand car dealer who set up shop in one of the old MT pool garages after it all closed down.

I bet the 172 felt a bit small/lonely in the middle of all that tarmac - you could have taken off between the piano keys and the peritrack!

Going to have a quick look for something to post...

A not very confident bid for Holmsley South (New Forest).

Not Holmsley South I'm afraid, flyingwing, but I can certainly see where you're coming from with that one.

Nope, you are correct, there are plenty of aLERTS and not enough aLoofs

No, not Warton. There is no water in the immediate vicinity.
