Cryptic hint for the next airport:

There are no crusaders here.

I suppose we need to establish a fact first...

Are we talking about the Vought F-8 Crusader fighter and recon aircraft ?

No, besides, that would not be a good hint no? The number of airports that don't have, or never had, F-8s is quite considerable. You're looking for another Crusader.

That was about the only thing I found on google

Two other options could be Cessna factory airfield in Wichita or Reims Prunay in France.

The Cessna Crusader was built in both places but is now no longer made.

You're all cold, you're looking for another crusader. I think the crusader I'm looking for is feeling a bit chilly as well.

It's been the same old few contributors here for a while now so I'll give it a week and throw this open to anyone except for me, Petertenthije and WRXflyer.

Come on folks, don't be shy, have a go......

Bond, James Bond; may have had something lost or stolen here?

Imagine, the Canuks starting a project that would become a sanctuary for accipiters?

Hmmm ? Accipiter is the family name for Hawk, Goshawk and Sparrowhawk birds of prey.

Canada (RCAF) flies Hawk trainers....

Yes, bird watching has paid off ... "eh" .. ?

But, migration was an issue.

Nope.

There is a lot of "star gazing" now; much more than bird watching.

Do " A Corrigan" and then go a bit farther.

Well....Douglas (wrong way) Corrigan famously "mistakenly" flew from New York to Baldonnell, Ireland when supposed to be flying back to Long Beach, California.
He had been refused permission to make a transAtlantic flight and claimed a "navigation error" !! took him across to Ireland.

So...now I'm in Baldonnell but you say I have to go a bit further. Next question...A bit further but still in Ireland ?

EDIT. Can't be in Ireland I suppose as Baldonnel is almost bang on the East coast so.....across to England....or further ?

Stargazing? Oh! Watch out for the predatory cats seen frequently there!
