Morale perhaps?

Please remove it before my wife (Asian) and I next fly to the UK. I have already suffered a journey from Kendal to Aberystwyth due to those infernal maps. Ely really would be a canBRIDGEshire too far.

TBF Aberystwyth was worth the trip - but based on previous Ely visits I would put my foot down.

Flight Radar24 shows most flights from west of here departing obscure places like Birmingham/Manchester fly directly over us in Mildenhall before heading off across Suffolk and Norfolk to the coast so presumably a way marker around here due to the RAF/USAF?

So does Etihad (who also seem not to recognise Doha)

I have noticed this too and always get nostalgic as i attended boarding school in Ely in the late 90's / early 2000's. Ely is a lovely little town well worth visting in the summer.

The Doha deletion is a more recent development due to geopolitics.

Bermuda Rise is important as Bermuda sits on the top of it!
