Now when I mean RWY-09 is soft I mean it a few Pic's of said RWY.
The Area in thats most soggy is from the entrance to the Carpark to level with ther entrance down to the Manouvering Aera. Although right back to Threshold is also soggy.
Caution needs to be applied anmd remember keep ya stick right back when taxing.
Other RWY's are not as bad as 09. But do have there own soft patches.

We are working with the Council to formulate a plan to get a more usable and less soggy surface.
