first off- fantastic map, your hard work is much appreciated ;D

i live in norwich so flying around the local area is of some interest to me but i have noticed some anomilies, the main one being the position of Coltishall airbase- it should be further from Norwich- more specifically where you have Oulton base ( which itself should be east of Aylsham not west!- in reality is just off edge of map but could be placed north of Cawston on the edge? )

the area you have Coltishall atm is roughly Beeston St Andrew which was iirc used as a decoy for Coltishall at some point of the war.

other local anomalies are Norwich has no urban textures, indeed it has a forest in the middle of it :laugh:- we might have a reputation for being backward but not 2000 years :o

Bolox,

Thank you for bringing those details to our attention. A map revision is underway now; we'll try and address these issues. Good find on the airfield pictures!
