What are you trying to do? Do you want to find places called "farm airport" or search for help questions that people have asked about "farm airport"?

If the former, type "farm airport" into the "search" box on the main site, and you'll get lots of matches. If the latter, type "farm airport" into the box at the top of this page and you'll get this question at the top of the list (it matches both words) and then other nearly-matches. How many help questions about "farm airport" were you expecting, though?

The question has been closed for the following reason "unclear since three years, impossible to answer in a more meaningful way. Anyway: yes, the search engine needs to mature!" by aseerel4c26 21 Feb '15, 22:21
