The main highway crosses the airstrip at right angles.
Even in this situation, morons exist.

In fact Aard these photos are the best I've ever seen of Gibraltar. They really show what the place is all about.
I've never been there but have passed it by in a ship. Always wanted to visit the  graves of the sailors from the battle of Trafalgar and WW2.

Here is a photo I took.

Yeah, I've always heard of the 'Rock of Gibraltar' and the war battles but have never actually seen pictures of it. Spectacular!

It's a penisula at the entrance to the Med but I believe it's British ruled but self governing most famous for it's huge rock formation depicted in the pictures.

It is an RAF base based on the tip of spain looking over to morroco. The British war fuel reserves are kept within the rock. Its mostly occupied by Brits and has avery british feel. Tax free most companies set up home here as its away of getting round tax. Its a great night out on the piss and the rock has monkeys that steal things from you.

All in all worth a visit   ;)

Sounds good to me!

BTW, nice seeing an MPA avatar back on the forum, especially the Nimrod.
