Midlands Airport at Horseleap

Was listening to local radio on the way to work this morning and see that the hoped-for airport at Horseleap made the news again. The man representing residents of Horseleap was interesting.

Airfield Quiz

Ok here is a little airfield photo quiz that I think is perhaps not all that difficult to someone who has flown around Ireland a little. They can all be seen on the island of Ireland.

Well done to Ormand...
