A320 Glider

But a burden upon the taxpayer, CAL has/had a 3,049m runway, more than they were ever likely to need or might only need once in a blue moon so not sufficient to financially support its existence, so they shut down around 40% of the runway to a more suitable length to reduce overheads, NQY remains with a full length runway!!

I thought the existence of such a long runway was one of the main reasons for selecting NQY as a UK Spaceport location.

You can easily cut that runway in half!
EZY seasonals to LGW can do STOL ops.

TODR won't be an issue as the demand cannot be that high between LGW NQY for a full load on an A319/20.

Not half but certainly by 30%, Cotswold Airport gets by with 2,000m and around these times looks like this

Can anyone enlighten me as to the Boeing 777-300 the landed at Newquay yesterday? Thought it looked like it was wearing a Biman livery!

Apparently stopped for lunch and fuel before heading back east!

A few USAF C17's about over recent days also.

Daily Mail reporting UK spent 8 million on a runway extension at NQY for AF1. Do we know what works were actually carried out?

All I heard was the southside apron area was re-inforced/ re-surfaced for heavy aircraft.

Golden rule, never trust anything the Daily Fail reports as it's usually inaccurate or wrong!

This article from Simple Flying seems to suggest that "...a large US military plane, carrying several Osprey aircraft" was accompanying POTUS.

According to RadarBox, x4 USAF C-17 Globemasters (03-3119, 00-0184, 07-7169 & 07-7176) landed at NQY between 6-7th Jun so perhaps the upgrades would have been needed in order to be able to handle these, as Dct_Mopas suggests?

Not that there is any need for a runway extension but a dead giveaway would be if there have been any recent NOTAM's regarding WIP, ILS off air, approach lights inop etc. etc. etc.

Stobart Air ceases trading with immediate effect, that’s the end of Belfast and Dublin flights from NQY as they were operated by Stobart air, as Aer Lingus regional.

Be interested to see if Ryanair would try a twice weekly flight. Could work seasonally.

I would be surprised if EI didn’t have a back up plan. After all the regional contract was only due to run another 12 months or so before transferring to the new operator.

I would suspect mainline metal on some routes short term

and an early start date for the new entity ? Perhaps even taking on the STK leased aircraft and the crews ?
