Re: UK Military Airfield Guide 2020.

Agreed
It's very good
I still keep my 2017 version in the car.
I would suggest it's a "one off" purchase as nothing really changes

Mike

Many thanks on the updates
As the Sentinel's had been reviewed,it was worth doing the Shadow's
Over a year ago G-DAYM/ZZ508 was around,I can't remember where the info came from

I will keep looking
