Actually its three based FR aircraft durung the summer and two in the winter and its 662,000 PAX. I would suggest that whoever is buying it is buying it for far more than the PAX terminal and before the various 'know it alls' come in with their House Builder jibes I doubt very much if that is what will happen with the airfield. There is some of it that may be sold off (as there is a lot of land) for commercial purposes but the airfield will remain intact given the increase in MRO , FBO, Fuel stop, Training and cargo business. Rumour is that it may not be AGS but again pure speculation without any foundation. Time will tell.
