Noticed earlier the process of removing all the various signage and branding has begun, including the entrance sign at the roundabout and the arrivals and departures signs above the terminal doors

I presume ATC will revert back to Teesside at some time or does that take longer?

Thread name change

And - when does the Header change to "Teesside International".
Or does a new thread have to be started?

Sure, according to Gooley Earth. Coming off the A67 to the airport, the roadsigns say 'Durham Tees Valley Airport"
However, on the A66 it says "Teesside Airport".

I think there was a long running row where the signs on roads controlled by the Highways Agency weren't changed as they wanted Peel to pay.

Ironic that they'll now have to go to the expense they tried to avoid!

What aircraft on 'fire training' dump?

Just been looking on Gooley Earth.
Everyone but me probably knows what is it - but - There is an aircraft on far side of TIA that 'looks' like a BA 1-11. I'm sure the "British" is still visible.
Does it still exist and any details please.
Just nosey.

Trident G-AWZS.
Many thanks.
Back in the day, made many a flight on them when they did the MAN-LHR Shuttle.

Two calibrator a/c from Shoreham to calibrate the new radar?

Calibration all down to contracts. Thales generally do military work and Flight calibration services do civil work. Looks like the based DA-42 is going to join in later though.

Alba Star to Palma starting 19/07/2020 - 10 flights. Tour operator is Jetsgoholidays - although a UK firm, seem to be bonded in Spain? Also can't spell Teesside!

Well it's a start I guess, just hope it proves as popular as Bourgas has this summer. There is a strong public feeling across the area that we all need to chip in and help the airport grow so I am sure it will be. Have to admit I'd never heard of Jetsgo before though! To be operated by Albastar with 737-800.
Interesting comments by Ben suggesting they're in talks with other operators for London, Dublin and a low cost operator. I wouldn't read too much into them as I am sure they're always talking but sure hope some more destinations are possible!

As much as MME, TIA or DTVA (or any other acronym ya fancy ) would like far more scheduled airline services than at present, its always been my view that its the mass public with their oft denigrated bucket and spade flights that puts cars in car parks, money in tills at Duty Free, Cafes, Bars any shoppertunities that open and bums on seats to put some profit into a business and create an energy circle that will help it grow.
phew, that was a long sentence!

I don't see the problem with the post you're complaining about - it's true and it affects small airports much more than big ones

PS can we all post on one forum going forward - I suggest the Teeside International one is now the "active" forum
