I counted 19 fins on the main apron area in the morning, but no idea as to the total in.

Regular Cappuccino 3rd Feb 2009 21:49

Around 30+ divs in total by the time I left on Monday (around 6ish) and there may have a been a few more after that.
Nice pics Nutloose - I took over upstairs as the 777 was taxiing in.
Well done to everyone who kept the runway operational while everyone else was closing down. :D

Does anyone know if the passengers from thr diverted traffic were bussed to the Parkway?It would have been a good start for the station if they were.

EMA runway is still closed, been closed since about 5.30 I think, not expect to open until as late as 10.30. Any more info?

NutLoose 5th Feb 2009 22:14

Well this will give you an Idea as to what they were up against this at 10 am this morning, I frightened myself to death driving in and nearly hit a car in Donington, and was fearful of getting stuck at work if it got any worse so I scared myself witless driving back home again at about 15 MPH...... I won't do that again.... I passed the local posty on the way in and he gave me one of those what the hell are you doing looks..... He was right!!

Got to say I think the guys at EMA did a great job getting the runway swept and open again in record time considering the conditions - perhaps some other airports could take a leaf out of their book!

Mr @ Spotty M 8th Feb 2009 10:05

I would say looking at the last picture, you have had very little snow compared with the airports in the south, is that why you seemed to cope better?

NutLoose 8th Feb 2009 13:49

Size could be a factor as well, one runway, very few taxiways and less acreage of apron space to keep clear.....

Etihad A330 EMA.
Etihad Used EMA tonight a Divert from MAN Dropped in for fuel. Parked on the DHL Apron for its Short stay.

Understand MOL RYR Visited EMA Last Night. He was at BOH today as per the RYR Thread. Probably Doing a UK Tour. Im Sure he was trying to do a Good Deal with the airport. Hopefully the airport has Secured At least One More Aircraft to be Based and some New Routes for 2009:ok:.

OliWW 14th Feb 2009 09:01

Good news for EMA! I hope the route does as well as IOM has done, they would most likely operate it on a ATR72, I hope they get good passenger figures, as it can carry about 70 passengers and the flight is daily!

Feet on ground 15th Feb 2009 14:00
