or Airport?

these are not distinguished, and those I have been able to place were
not correctly placed
to me that is useless information
Some could be placed from aerial imagery but others not so,
particularly when the airstrip and the racecourse share the same space
eg Ardlethan NSW currently, and Quamby Qld from memory

Correctly tagged and placed, this could have been useful information.
However right now it is very poor quality.
