The runway is also the main road into Gibralter.
It must have changed alot since I last visited. It used to be full of Asian shopkeepers selling souvernir tat to the visitors. I used to drive there to do some shopping, HP Sauce, Heinz Ketchup, Walls Sausages etc, then drive back into Spain.

I seem to remember the runway crossed the main road!

Gib reminds me of either the Channel Islands or Tenby - unfortunately it is changing VERY fast - will soon be a mini Hong Kong!!!

Yes you are right about the runway - quite strange driving across it minutes after a plane has landed!!!
