a lengthy period of closure it is being reported that both Bembridge and Sandown on the
Isle of Wight are once again open for business.
Bembridge, apparently the subject of a dispute between airfield owner and
operator, was re-opened Saturday 20th April.
Sandown meanwhile, with its grass runway, fell
victim to the inclement weather and has been closed for much of the winter due to
waterlogging. Although still appearing as closed in the AIS Aerodrome bulletins, a call to
the airfield confirms that it was also re-opened Saturday.
