Really frustrating day today as it's the first time I have used the vast new runway.
With the wind favouring the 07 direction I was well airborne before it, so my wheels didn't sully the pristine surface. In future I'll go from the intersection.
The return, flying the straight-in from Snetterton offers the most unsettling optical illusion, the grey existing runway ends abruptly at the solid black extension which then becomes the light, sandy-coloured ex-scrapyard. From final it looks for all the world as if there is now a black, vertical wall at the end of the old runway
And, yet again, my wheels never got to try the new bit.
Runway markings currently notable by their absence.
