  1. A former military airfield. I learned how to fly out of an Air Force base aero club for military and civilian employees and their immediate family members. When I had my first landing with my instructor at a small airport I could not believe how skinny the runway appeared at first to my eyes. But of course that adjustment didn't take long. Wonder what happened here. Maybe the pilot wasn't used to the large airfield 150' wide runway and had a flare optics misjudgement resulting in a bounce oscillation?
