Sheffield Airport is to close for good as that BBC news story suggests a bunch of people are trying to save it. Why bother? Here it is compared with Finningley at the same scale, one is a quite a bit bigger than the other. You will also notice that the main runways are aligned in different directions, one is better aligned for the prevailing wind conditions than the other. I'll leave you to guess which one...
