    January 2010 FII Magazine Photo

    by Pilot » Sat Dec 19, 2009 6:14 pm

    Can anyone tell me which airport is featured in the photo on the bottom right of page 27 of the January 2010 FII Magazine?

    I can't figure out where it is.

    Thanks

    Thanks WT.

    Is that a fact or a guess?

    Enniskillen was my first thought, but then the terminal building didn't look right to me. I thought there was more of an apron to it than in the photo, and thought there was somewhat of a disused taxiway to the side, which I couldn't see in the photo.

    WT beat me to it with the correct answer Donal.

    Some of you may not realise that Enniskillen/St Angelo Airfield started life as a military airfield during April 1941. There were two runways. The active one you see in the excellent photo in "Flying in Ireland" is 15/33 1264m x 30m and the second 06/24 1860yds x 50yds started on the left beside the two hangars and crossed the main road heading NE.

    I haven't seen the picture in question. But having flown maybe 10 hours there i'm sure i'd have gotten it. And i'd be in the minority that knew of the airfields military heritage.
    Nice place, friendly. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    Interesting article in that it didn't make any reference to the school involved. You'd have thought it would have, although it's pretty easy to work it out.
