A great photo, you can actually see the skid marks left by other aircraft that have landed here over the years. This airport used to be named Ghardaka and was one of the airfields attacked by the Israeli air force during the 1967 Six Day War. One Egyptian MiG-19 made the mistake of landing on a bombed out runway here where it crashed and exploded, killing the pilot, a scene recreated in the Dogfights episode: Dogfights of the Middle East.
