Speaking of $partner's TV programs, why does nobody in Escape to the Country ever say, "Oh, and I want a long skinny block for an airstrip?"
maybe only if they had a real inglenook fireplace, all the bedrooms upstairs and acres of land they'll never use... and pigs...
I reckon if I owned a big parcel of land, I'd maintain a simple airstrip just 'cos.
I'd be fine with visiting, but some other aircraft owners maybe not ...
Any unwelcome guests would be used for target practice ;-)
A sort of runway come shooting range.
Not as silly as it sounds, actually. Just need some kind of roll on/roll off target frames.
Prob need to warn the airforce not to fly any of their planes with targets prepainted.
I want a long skinny block for my private railway... ;)
