Farley


Note: This map only provides the position of Farley village within the UK. If anybody can kindly offer advice, this will be most welcome.


FARLEY: Temporary landing site
 

Location: The village of Farley is roughly 4.5nm east of Salisbury city centre
 

NOTES: In the AAIB report EW/G2013/11/08 this location is described as a “Farm strip near Farley, Salisbury, Wiltshire.” Even from the circumstances described in the report it appears reasonably clear this location was not a ‘farm strip’. It was just a stubble field elected by the pilot of the QuikR G-CGLO as being suitable for use.

But this does of course raise the vexed issue of what actually constitutes a 'farm strip'. Personally I prefer to use the term when a defined and visible strip, or 'runway' is evident. But, if for example a suitable field is regularly used, what on earth do you call it?
