The airfield remains at a critical stage where damage can still occur from vehicles and aircraft turning in the few remaining soft patches, mainly on the western side of the threshold of RWY19. Any ruts created now, will likely remain for the rest of the summer. Caution required for gliders landing long- deep ruts are present in trench backfill.
