Great report as usual Grahame.

Just noticed the plastic knife being out of place in one of your photos. Have many airlines gone back to using metal knives or are the plastic knives here to stay?

Then it has to be 110% Anburla airstrip which is East of the Bond Springs strip. Should be correct.

From what I can Google, Anburla looks good to me.
