Long may it continue, or until the end of September at least!!

It is great to see SEN so busy, however stands are going to have to be freed up for the start of Ryanair's three aircraft operation next spring. Perhaps some of the longstay bizjets will have to be stacked like they do at LTN to free up space.
Still it's a good position to be in, and gives the lie to some of the doomongers on here who couldn't wait for the airport to fail.
