Frenchy,Many thanks for that one. This seems to be one of the very few places where information on RAF bases can be obtained. It made me laugh though :-lol The reason for this is that I had an e-mail conversation with Gary Summons about the lack of this kind of information on the internet, and he said that he couldn't get it from them for security reasons ! I'm going to e-mail him about this site right now !You're a gem.Chris Low,ENGLAND.

Stephen,Thanks for the information. I obtained the information regarding the three RAF bases that you mention from one of the above posts. However, Saltby is one that I can use. Many thanks.Just one thing. Two runways at Saltby are designated as 7/25. Which one is which ? In other words, 7L/25R and 7R/25L.Best Wishes,Chris Low,ENGLAND.
