This link is already posted on another ukga forum but i have posted it here because of my support for panshanger. 10 years ago when hurricane katrina made landfall, the faa grounded a load of planes; the only ones flying were privately owened and a super dc3 flew in to slidell on a mission to bring aid from texas. They made that airfield. That is why aerodromes are important not just for fun; we need our aerodromes saved.
