Archerfield Aerodrome has resumed operations with a number of improvements, and continues to construct new facilities.
As the above image indicates, the runways have been paved to allow for newer aircraft (and an upcoming ZSK jet), and taxiways have been added to help with the inevitable increase in traffic. Limited parking is now available too.
TTI and the flight school have been moved to the north side of the airport. Pilots should note that Runway 07-25 no longer exists and has been replaced with Runway 09-27.
A cabbie responded to a call from a new taxi app called “Prototyped,” and it sent him to a remote substation in the hills past Prototype.
“I would say that it was no big deal,” the cabbie told us, “except that the security guys there strip searched me and mangled my doughnut for contraband. I’m not using the app until they fix it.”

“Bienvenue,” an Ardennes local told us, “just don’t forget that we are in the middle of a war, here.”
Phase Foxtrot testing has been completed for Feral Marine’s MLB, a highly anticipated patrol craft.
“Law enforcement agencies and coastal patrols have all been begging for the MLB,” said one boat dealer in East River. “So it’s gonna be bank day when it gets released.”
This photo was taken at Archerfield, shortly before airport renovations. The picture shows test pilots and engineers working late into the night on the highly anticipated plane.
