#2 The chart I looked at initially (and is not accessible by the link I left) is apparently outdated. Here is a link to a current chart.

#3 Did the iris like symbol look like one of the symbol at this site? Iris like symbol

If it is what I think it is, it indicate the airfield is a military only airfield.

#7 What I find interesting is the search radar unit to left in the photo setup horizontal and on the centerline of the runway.
Almost like somebody's doing radar cross section tests of evidently gear down?
