You could have told us where it was! (It's in Sri Lanka, for anyone who doesn't know.)

Not sure where to post this but way back it seems any size is acceptable

This is a small country airstrip on private land

During Tasmania's 2016 bushfire emergency, the inconspicuous Vale Airstrip, at the base of picturesque Mount Roland, became the biggest air base ever established by the Tasmania Fire Service (TFS).

"Rotary wings and helicopters started coming in, we started off with three," he said.

"That quickly grew over the coming days to 18 helicopters plus two water bombers and two fixed-wing spotters, so we had 22 aircraft in the peak of the fires."

The quiet airstrip burst into a hive of activity and until the last helicopter flew out on March 3, the runway and neighbouring paddocks were inundated.

"It was unprecedented, we had around 6,700 landings and take-offs so you can double that figure to up around 13,000 air movements,"

"For a private airstrip that is unheard of and it's certainly the biggest air base TFS has established for its firefighting efforts to date."


To put that in perspective, the Launceston Airport, which hosts three major airlines plus smaller operators, has around 18,000 aircraft movements in an entire year.

Richard,

In all seriousness are YOU a pilot? This morning I saw THIS post seeing the grass runway, then found the same picture in the other thread we had fun in (now with the bunny).
You seem to have a lot of knowledge about the TFS that I would think the general public would not have. I commend you for your work in trying to put out the nasty bush fires in your country.

Charles I'd best put the cat back in the bag!
Not the pilot. It's a local airstrip very close by. We're under its flightpath, well normally.

As for TFS, it's "in your face" every day for the last 2 months and really has been part of life here for past few years.
I'm not personally involved.
I once did volunteer work. Not now.
Our fires have been and are still extremely devastating.
When that event in 2016 took hold this airfield was a boon to those fighting fires.
They were right on the edge of the firefront only accessible by air due to the mountains.
The noise of helicopters and planes was incessant.

Trust I've righted the records :-)

That you Richard,

There was a story tonight on the evening NBC Nightly News about the wildfires in Australia. It looks very bad down under. I do hope you and every one else are safe from these disasters.

Thank you

I was back home to Long Island a couple of weeks ago, and stopped to visit the TWA Hotel at JFK. They have restored the original TWA terminal as the entrance to the hotel, with displays, a restaurant, and bar open to the public. There is an old Lockheed Constellation behind the building which now serves as a cocktail lounge. My Dad spent nearly 40 years working for TWA at JFK, and I've been through that terminal countless times growing up.

The black building to the right (and the corresponding one to the left) of the central terminal contain the hotel rooms.

When TWA operated from the terminal, this window looked out on the ramp and the two gate houses, and you could watch aircraft operations. The board listed arriving and departing flights, and has been there since the place was new.

One of the two iconic tunnels that led from the main terminal building to the original gate houses. They now connect to the JetBlue terminal.

Part of the display recreating Howard Hughes' office. Hughes owned TWA for many years, and led its growth from the 1940s into the 1960s.
