Strip, Field and Port
Yesterday we kept at ground level with a feature on the North Ronaldsay Sheep Festival. Today we take off with the flying facilities on the island - for yesterday saw the opening of a new waiting room at the terminal. The Orcadian has the report and makes a reference to the 'airport'. In the image above it is referred to as an 'airstrip'. In between must come the term 'airfield'. Any technical definitions?
