Remember there is a lip on pad entry. Ground has now Dried out ALL GOOD.

Follow instructions on Terminal.

When getting Fuel multiply your quantity by $2.40 for amount required or you will end up doing the card thing again. Example 60 Litres = $145.00

Please sign book in box.

Also if wanting a receipt do this pretty much after hose returned to holder.



Remember no Landing Fee's and uncontrolled Airspace.

Thanks for choosing SD (Stratford) as your Fueling stop

The Hell can't see anything photo because all those YAK's in the way.

Cresco feeling a bit out numbered.

Guys & Gal's getting some R & R and refreshments in whilst the WX wait continues.

Waiting for Starters orders.
