Totally off aviation, but you may not know that personal finance experts recommend that people have a savings cushion of three months in case something unexpected would happen. The reality is that most people don't have three weeks of cushion. Presently much of the population is going to wind up either on furlough, with just 80% of their income paid by the government, and another tranche will be working but with their income drastically reduced. The only groups that are likely to be unaffected and have the luxury of being able to stash some cash for a holiday are those on final salary pension schemes, or decent annuities, of those working in the public and vital industry sectors.

People aren't going to have the luxury of taking a (foreign) holiday after 6 months of this, and I really can't see it lasting just the three. Optimists really need to take a reality check!.

I can see the commercial aviation industry virtually going back to "ground zero", and the clock being completely reset, with a myriad of new carriers and tour operators rising up, run by senior managers, each in small market segments as we had in the 1960s and 1970, and that they will bit by bit be consolidated in larger, though perhaps not global players. I say this because after this crisis has run it's course there will be far more urgent calls upon government support than supporting leisure businesses; especially after they have been splashing the cash keeping people's heads above water during the crisis.

Eminently sensible comment relating to more than just BOH. Could you possibly post it on Coronavirus Impact on Air Travel?

I know Bournemouth and the surrounding area tends to be fairly peaceful. However there seem to be a large number of aircraft being stored at BOH, in a location rather close to a public road. Does BOH have sufficient security surveillance to ensure people don't try something late at night ?

Police and airport security are patrolling the area 24/7 and will now ask people to move on if hanging around.

CCTV would be a good addition though along that fencing just in case.

So what's the approx value of aircraft that BA are storing or are about to store at BOH ? Has it gone over £1bn yet ? You'd think that somebody would want stronger security than just a wire fence and a few coppers asking people to move along please...

Iím puzzled that you seem to think people are going to be making a beeline for BOH with a view to either damaging or pilfering from the aircraft stored there?

A damn site less than it was a month ago...

I'm a bit puzzled about the supposed vulnerability of BOH as opposed to lots of other places.

BAW9157 showing as G-CIVP B747 should be arriving 1615 roughly. WRONG

My concern is not of pilfering, lets face it taking an engine home in back seat of a Corsa will be noticed, even by Hampshire Constabulary.

it is more along the lines of people wishing to do something that creates permanent damage to generate news for groups in Mid East.

Shot with permission, as the video preamble makes clear.

Not a no fly zone, its a Flight Restriction Zone (FRZ).

Assuming that you are complying with the current "stay home" policy, here is some light reading to help keep the boredom at bay;

Window blinds are closed on all passenger and flight deck windows. Is this to avoid fading of the furnishings and interior from sunlight?

I believe it's designed to prevent the cabin temperature getting too high from the sun shining through all day; the heat isn't good for the cabin. Just a small example; I was once on an aircraft that had come out of storage and every sticker on all of the cupboards (for example showing where all the equipment was stowed) were pealing and falling off, as the heat effects the adhesive so it required new stickers throughout the entire cabin.
