    Nice one Katie, I got a 15 this year as well at Stowe Maries. It's not normaly open but I persuaded the guy the the wires were not only at the other end but in no way restricted at TST in any case. A nice runway, pity it's not used more it is kept nicely mown.

    Katie
    When you want a 12 or a 30 you can pop back to North Weald 'cos they've changed the runway designations. Try 8th June when the dragsters will be tearing up (and down) the main runway so hairyplanes will be on the cross runway.

    I can't believe you haven't been into Deenethorpe for 04/22.

    Hi Terry, What I have posted twice?

    Richard, yes Deenethorpe would be an obvious one for the 04-22 and I have been there when the Cafe was open but haven't been back since it shut.

    Joan, yes I will be back at North Weald at some point for those rare numbers.

    What is interesting (to me) is that there are loads of 03-21s and 06-24s around here but 04-22s are rare.

    One day in nil wind I decided to land on all the official runways at Chatteris in order: 01, 03, 06, 11, 19, 21, 24 and 29, however I was getting a bit fed up by 21 to be honest. I will add the unofficial 23 at some point when it gets cut (Our 23 is permanently unusable between the 2 white crossers at the 23 end)

    Anyway got me another new one to day, a rare 13 at Sackville Farm although I'm sure the runway there changes QFU midway :smile:
