Living in Thornaby was very handy for left base for 23. The 70's brought a lot of training aircraft as already mentioned, one day springs to mind when Dan Air had a BAC 111 and Comet 4 plus a BEA Vanguard in the circuit, not easy for local training school Charlie 1,2 or 3 to get a look in.

Great crew training memories!

Back to today..another site mentions that the Cobham contract is up for grabs? If memory serves me right it was worth..a few years ago..2million to the airport per year?

If and of course..itís a big if..How will that affect the Mayors financial plans and budget if a buy out is successful?

Still interesting times!

The current contract is to be replaced by a new programme from 2020 (Cobham is in one of the competing teams) - see link below

Sorry..I meant to add..if and of course, itís a big if..what happens if the contract is lost?
The aircraft are getting on now(FA20) and rumour is,a lot of the new contract will be simulator based.

In other words..can the airport afford to loose that revenue every year?

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried, mainly because of the loss of business but also the prospect of Mirage F1s

MME-ABZ

According to Flightradar (so might not be correct!) Eastern EMB-145 on some Aberdeen flights from tomorrow - Shared with Humberside. (ER4 based at Humberside operating all their ABZ flights). Looks like different flights depending on which day.

ATR72 on tonight's flight.

Guessing itís using spare assets since theyíve lost the Airbus contract and have pretty much the whole EMB Fleet without much work now.

HUY-MME-ABZ not a great or efficient use of an EMB 145.

Interesting couple of months while the potential sale/takeover goes through.
Got me thinking...are PEEL still committed during this possible transition period..ie...upkeep,repairs potential small investments, airline searches,etc. Or does it all get put on the back burner? I suppose itís logical they donít want to spend too much cash and look ahead too far..pending the outcome?

Much to Beefers pleasure, but Iím sure the local news reported that all previous disclosures regarding the original sale will be published mid month?

In an e-mail from Ben, he stated that the potential operator and their business plan will also be revealed before the month is out, could make for interesting reading.

The annual review on the movements website suggested anything costing money was on hold, yet they're pressing ahead with a new radar? The news piece was full disclosure regarding the current sale not the previous.

Running an airport is an expensive business, I would expect that there are things they have to spend money on.

I agree that it is the current deal that the Mayor has promised full dsclosure on.

bmi Regional are operating for Eastern with an EMB 145 on the ABZ -NWI route! That was a 2 year contract as far as I can remember. Ironic now really.

Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, Yeti and MME/Peel!
Beafer you really have no clue do you.
There could be many reasons why the accounts are overdue. Many companies file late.
In this case it could be because of the proposed take over, they could be filing for an extension, they could be just late or companies house could be slow in uploading them... it was Christmas and New Year you know and 31st December is just about the busiest day for year ends in business.
The red writing is just a line in the programming just to highlight they are late, nothing particularly special, now if it was orange or purple that would be worth talking about!

You'll be the one who has a clue then Onion - not.
Late accounts from Peel - is that normal for a very large company with many limited side companies? Its all done electronically these days so its not a postal delay.
Not sure what the loch ness monster has anything to do with it, so best stay off the sherry Onion

I may have a clue as it's part of my day to day job!
Just out of interest did you comment on Jet2Holidays late filing of accounts in Jan 2018? Electronic you say?

Don't drink sherry prefer whiskey/whisky 😉

Beafer why retaliate when almost everyone holds you in the same regard? Numbers are very much on Onions side thus it can be taken as a given that his "you really have no clue do you" comment is truth rather than opinion
