Golf and Airfields

Hi All,

I'm a bit behind with listening to the podcasts, but I remember recently hearing a story about golf courses near runways. It made me recall my first flight on a in to Bangkok on a 747 - as the engines hit reverse thrust I looked out of the window and there were people playing golf between us and the terminal ! As we taxied in I saw a barrier had come down to prevent people crossing the taxiway. Truly bizarre.

Hope this links works - you'll get the idea.
