Plans[edit]

This section reads as if we were pre the 2010 change of government, after which the St Athan plans for Cosford came to nothing, but lacks reference to the present Defence Technical Training Change Programme and what is publicly known of its implications for Cosford.Cloptonson (talk) 06:42, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

Grass Runways[edit]

Has anyone been able to verify the existence of the grass runways? During a recent flyover it looked like there were two runways (roughly 01R/35L and 01L/35R) marked off, but I've been unable to find any reference to these strips in any of my usual sources. They all just list the paved runway. (In case you're curious, these sources list all known runways be they paved, grass or water.) If these strips DO exist, then they simply aren't registered with any aviation authority at which point it's debatable whether they should be including in the airport description. I have not edited the page as I do not consider absence of proof to be disproof and welcome any indication that the grass strips are indeed valid.

It looks like it is used for gliding though un-numbered visually, the only ref i could find is this [1] (which is not reliable) also there are two other grass runways which cross the paved runway which are virtually side by side. Gavbadger (talk) 23:10, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
