Over here in the UK there is a large runway at RAF Manston, Kent (2,700m).IT is used by several airlines, Virgin, Air UK etc for training. To see a 747 doing 'Touch & Go' is something. I have over the years seen A340, F100, DC8F & B707 as well. They are real landings, no ILS installed. I have even heard them ask for the PAPI lights to be turned off! Mike Mitchell.
