Richard created the topic: On Finals: Your airfields

There's just something about runways. They quicken the pulse and focus the mind. But often we are so busy focussing on the takeoff or landing that we miss the chance to actually see the view.

So, here's a chance to showcase your airfields and give us a chance to guess where they are. You can put the answers in a hidden section using the "Spoiler" button on the editor page.

Anyway, enough theory. I'll start the ball rolling...




P.S. for tips on using the spoiler or other functions of the editor, check out this info thread.

There's a fly-in here every month. Well worth the visit. Island sands and close to YRED but also YBBN!

WOW, Camden Haven. Beautiful looking country. Is that the airstrip running along the river side?

Yep, river, airstrip, railway line and new highway!
We fly the floatplane down to Camden Haven, land on the river, then take it up to the hangar (in centre of pic) for its 100 hourly. Busy building another one up in the hangar.

Brilliant shots mate. The patterns in the field on the first photo remind me of aboriginal paintings. Stunning.
