Who said Boscombe was closing?!

Why do threads like this always turn into a game of Ďwho can name a long and/or obscure runwayí?

Why not just relocate to Istres?!

I think our opinions differ somewhat on what constitutes a long runway.

Cottesmore may be considered as a reasonable length (9000í) but the other two (7500í) would not be classified as long. Maybe...

Is it an autocorrect thing or do people still not realise that the subject of this thread is called the RAFALE?!

It is named after a term roughly translated as a volley of fire.
