that it is useful to have some spare $$$ to help 'facilitate'
the checking in and out process and advise that its prudent to
take food and water with you as the in-airport facilities are
rarely operational. The airport has been the centre of a mystery dating back
to 25th May 2003 when a Boeing 727 formerly owned by American
Airlines was stolen from the airport having been parked there
for a year. It says something for airport security that such an
airplane can be stolen and never recovered!
