A few small things are slowly getting done around the airfield which haven't been done for years like groundwork. Hopefully to encourage new companies. Station is probably the last thing on anyone's mind.

And yet everyone bangs on about MME having a wonderful future.
Not from where I'm sitting.
Is there some nefarious scheme at play here?

Whilst not recognised by the airport the Spa Hotel or Durham Tees Hotel I think it's now called is still on-site. Whilst the airport having a wonderful future may be overly optimistic railway stations and hotels ultimately have no bearing on an airports fortunes (at least not for smaller regional airports anyway) and the airport has a perfectly content future.

It's acceptable to troll other trolls and most on here know Beafer invited it, thank goodness he was never proven right in his arguments!

Back in the day when I worked for an International company with factories in West Mids AND Darlington as well as design centres in Europe I spent more than a few nights at the old St Georges and many a flight out of MME, Europe bound.
So I have a sentimental interest in the old place.
So there!
No trolling.

Convair Beafer was unique, we believe he is now secure in the hospital on site. I actually work at the airport and know the staff past and present very well.

Can't comment on the thought process as to why I might be a troll because I live in Wolverhampton. He probably picked it up from my profile and thinks anyone from outside the area shouldn't post comments.
My attachment to the NE, not that I have to justify it, goes back many many years. (I'm even married to a Geordie) . Sadly the factory in Yarm Road closed and got demolished and for a time I thought MME was going the same way.

I had heard Nz7zz was the car park attendant at the airport. Again that my be a rumour as he refers to him/herself as WE so there may be more than one person /
Maybe he has a split personality referring to himself as we and may be in need of
a hospital bed
Welcome back Beafer

He's probably saying "we" because 95% of people on here share his opinion towards Beafer and his views

How sad!!

How sad that this thread about an airfield in which I have genuine concerns and hopes for its future has descended into a personal p---ing battle.
I have now unsubscribed from it.

Wonder how Beafer got a phone in the Priory Hospital.
Sixchannel, if you come here and throw stones you are bound to get abuse. I will say we hope the airport is about to turn a corner after it has just been bought, the ink hasn't dried on the paper as yet. Perhaps come back in three years and make the same comments and we might agree with you if nothing has happened.

I feel a need to backtrack a little here, one because I've stooped too low and I'm sure face-to-face Beafer is a nice enough guy, and two because the pprune police are gonna be all over this like a rash before much longer. That said, Beafer by dictionary definition is a troll and it seems every thread on here has it's own Beafer. Whilst there has been some minor rallying around him on this occasion, the history of the thread speaks for itself, 95% was obviously a estimation but let's knock 10% off of that so there can be no mistake. I think even if myself and others receive a ban it doesn't matter so long as Beafers arguments continue to have no foundation.
