Prefabricated Metal Runway?
I can't for the life of me remember what this stuff is called but I've seen it in plenty of documentaries from the WWII era. It's a system of interlocking metal panels used to cover and temporarily "pave" otherwise unprepared runway surfaces. The closest thing I've been able to find by Googling is "Prefabricated Bituminised Surfacing" (PBS), but I don't think that's what it is.
Can anyone help me out with finding the name for this material?
