I don't know what you guys are
complaining about. When I was a kid we couldn't even afford a landing strip we
had to land in a farmers field with the COWS! You don't know what a difficult
landing is until you get a up close to a Moo Cow........ <G>

Back where I come from, the strip was just
like yours, but only a mere
four inches wider than the wheels.
