Who gave him the 10? And I wonder if he has permission to film.

I'll make the film as soon as you give me the money to buy the equipment? Sounds like a dedicated film maker - God loves an optimist....

Too busy gardening.

The poster who added the video may start with a "B" but not mine.

Sounds more like the type of thing one of Peels Friends of the airport might do when not doing the parent companies bidding for free.

The video maker has until 2021 as the Peel management have stated, then the options are open.
Wonder where the 200k a month is going? Peel bills?

I'm sure there'll be a great return on that investment!

The Prime Minister refuses to comment on plans for the airport.

DTV Airport Peel plans.

It appears Mrs May wouldn't say that the government will help to buy back DVT Airport while flying in yesterday. No surprise there. They new Mayor used the DTV buy back spin to get votes, but he hasn't got the money, and Peel know he cant force them to sell the airport. They councils put paid to that signing it over.

Peel are a land company who are sitting on 800 acres of prime land so they won't sell it. They must be laughing all the way to the bank after adding the original contract clause which stated that the councils had to give up most of their DTV shares after 10 years IF the councils didn't put more money into the airport!
Something very strange went on if the council staff didn't see that part of the contract, OR did they? Hmmmmm, wonder if we'll ever find out who was in charge of the sale documents?

With the Peel company spokesman saying in the press recently that they won't guarantee DTVA's future after 5 years, I predict it will go something like this.

2018 First houses will be built and sold. Night flights will stop.
Peel will keep harping on about DTV losses, to help sway the public.

2021 or earlier, there will be another Share Swap with either another VAS type company, or one of the many Peel side companies to complicate any ownership issues with the council minorities, and probably more building plans applied for.

Prior to 2021 Peel will announce they can not support any more losses which they say are running at 200k a MONTH, which will be final nail in the coffin and the rest of the 800 site will be built upon.
Probably be a mix of houses and Industrial units.

Some might not like this, but its a safe bet that Peel will have already the housing estate plans already drawn up. Don't need to be Einstein to work that one out.
Robert the Peel man will call up from Manchester to say its been an expensive venture for them but they did their best.
What he won't say is yes we got a large public airport and 800 acres all for the small sum of 500,000.
Funny old world of funny handshakes and secret meetings to get a deal like that me thinks.

Have Peel given up paying the pensions of the DTV Airport staff? I heard they wanted the local councils to pick up the pension bills to save Peel paying them.
I didn't hear what the final decision was on that debacle.
Shocking to think the Public have to pay for DTV staff pensions when a private company (Peel) own the airport.

Why would a military unit relocate to a civvy airport?

The bottom line here is that Peel can make more money from the land as housing / commercial property than they can with an airport. Making money is what they do. It's their airport.


Darlington International has such a small catchment area, bounded by the sea, Newcastle and LBA that there is no prospect of it getting sufficiently busier to survive.

Commercial realities will win in the end. Look at the farce that Manston has developed into, as well as St. Mawgan.

airpolice, it was discussed some years ago as they thought the Hawks didn't need to be a military job, no idea why it was back healed. Don't forget Cobham used to be the Canberra squadron. Other things have also been talked about as Robert says watch this space.

If we are still talking Cobham/Leeming the next checkpoint should be the awarding of the ASDOT contract in 2020.

Says on this link that the Hawks at Leeming are due to carry on until 2027.

Can anybody local say exactly where this relates to? Any impact on DTVA?

Government 1.2 BILLION grants available.

Noticed the new wind farm is about to go up down the road.

I'm aware that Peel are moving into wind farms elsewhere in the country.
Made me wonder what was in it for them?
There is a post in the public comments section under this article which says that the government is paying out 1.2 billion in grants to build the wind turbines.
Wasn't this wind farm the one that Peel objected to, and said it would affect their radar at DTV?
