Not an airport, but should be well known for those that have flown in the Eastern Cape...!

A shoddy picture of us at this airport. I would reckon there is not a lot of people that has visited this place. I can give tyou some clues later.

Indeed correct Mr isiTututu

It's actually a dirt landing strip called Henry's Flats - FAHF
Latitude:      -33.11667
Longitude:    25.755556

At one stage it was ones as one of the landing and navigation points for pilots in training from Progress Flight school in PE (where I learnt to fly in '96)
The beauty of the nav point was the fact that it lay in the kink of the river which made a good landmark on the paper maps being used for the Nav.

As far as I can remember the main rwy had a moerse pothole about a third of the rwy down and we always had to make sure it was a deep landing. Later on the airfield was excluded due to lack of maintenance and it apparently became too dangerous to use. Pity though - nice clubhouse based on a honesty bar etc.

Hey SD

See here has been no action for a while. Obviously it's in the Sahara, but it's very big with tonnes of old cities. Another clue perhaps?

It's an old picture, so the airport might have changed a bit.
My guess is Timbuktu Airport (TOM), Mali.  It's certainly one of the most well-known ancient city in Africa.
