Well this piece of dirt isn't in the ERSA at all, however R235 may be associated with it, if you can work out what that is.....

It probably could, but it would make an awful mess I would reckon

I'm thinking that the Todd would be a much better place to land a seaplane in the Alice

Its not an airstrip, that is for certain

I'm wondering who will be the first to work this one out.

After looking at the image closely, I can not see a taxiway leading to anywhere off the runway.

So, is it a firing range of some description??


David.M.

If I'm right, can I post the next photo of an obscure airport and see how long it takes people to guess so that I can be the one who gets to hang on to the correct information rather than sharing.
GIVE IT UP JARRAD! :-)

Good job on that Grahame, R235 is indeed a electro-magnetic hazard, but not what you photographed....

Yes, ok David I'll give it up

Speaking from experience in mere Y class, Singapore Airlines uses metal knives on the SIN-HKG route, but on the SIN-SYD route you get a plastic knife and a card that blames government regulations for the lack of a proper knife.
