The airfield has survived the soaking remarkably well (although at the rains peak there was a lot of surface water) and a canoe would have been more use. On a positive note though, the airfield management have used the opportunity of the softer surface to get the roller out and start to flatten out some of the unacceptable bumps that have been growing over the last few years. This should be part of an ongoing improvement program for us.

Also during the day we saw evidence of the increased military presence in readiness for the Olympics with multiple passes of RAF Typhoon's just south of the airfield and a visit from a RAF Griffin Helicopter as part of Exercise Taurus Mountain.
