Is there a set wrong and right way of landing/ taking off from an airfield? i.e Always take off to the north etc or did it vary from field to field?

No there is no such regulations. In real life you will allways take off and land into the wind, in order to keep the speed versus the air around the plane high, and keep the speed versus the ground low.

I saw the readme-file regarding one of the new maps (think it was Murmansk) saying that on one of the airfields the AI-bombers must land from one specific direction only, because they will fly into ground on final if they land from the other direction.

I have crashed into another plane as we both taxed off the runway heading to the hangers. Im assuming you can only taxing in one direction on the small strips on the outside of the main runway.(??)
