Norman Manley International, Kingston, Jamaica?

(Open-house if correct)

Try this easy one. I can't believe it hasn't been used alreay ... or has it? I thought I posted it before, but I don't find it in Mel's list.

Edited to substitute an easier picture of the same airfield.

It is easy, but I can't remember the blasted name and I have got to rush to work now. Can I have a half point for almost remembering the name

Yes it is the airfield at Grand Case, St Martin. L'Esperance, SFG / TFFG.

This overview picture made it too easy.

mr ripley produced a close-enough answer and has control.

Slim,

I see your US geography is about as good as my European geography. Jacksonville is NOT south of Homestead.

Cubs thanks.

In that case I'll have a stab at Nassau. May just be south of Homestead.

Not Nassau sorry.

If you left Nassau in aviate1138's (it was him wasn't it?) hypothetical aircraft from a few pages back with full tanks you would arrive at this airport with approx 1/3 fuel remaining.
