I vaguely recall flying into Ipswich back in 1971. All I can recall is two
short grass runways and a tatty caravan that acted as the ATC and landings
office. They don't make them like that any more..

That  shows the data as being extracted from Orwellbridge.bgl. A further
check shows the .bgl as being one of two, plus exclude file, in Suffolk
I wouldn't have thought someone building a bridge would, quite
seperately, have include an extinct airfield. Who knows. Stranger things
