— Might anyone know what the condition of Nampo's runway. Is it good for a RV nose dragger?

I visited them yesterday. The landingstrip is in good condition. Be careful with the taxi to the parking. 172 apparently had a propstrike in the parking area. Have your licence and paperwork with you as CAA is also there for a ramp inspection.
The show is worthwile visiting.

I visited Nampo today.
Runway is good, but the parking area was quite wet and a substantial amount of power is needed to keep moving.

ATC were tops, always.

I was there Wednesday, ATC providing AFIS was good, the runway was not impressive for the RV . Show is great , like an oshkosh, but for farmers with tented accommodation etc - event is high recommended to do at least once.
