That was mentioned on the Monday 21st programme - it's nowhere near Gatwick, it's in the south of France (Nimes I think). Knowing how busy Gatwick is I was struggling to believe that they'd be...

I took a drive down to Ifield/Charlwood Road yesterday lunchtime and it does indeed give a slightly elevated view of the airfield compared to Lowfield Heath Road. You'll need a long lens or decent...

I did a Classic Wings flight in one of the Duxford ones a couple of months ago - over Cambridge, Newmarket and Ely. But you could do a different flight to sightseeing over London instead so perhaps...

You have inferred that, I have inferred nothing. Come back when you've actually read my 2nd post as to what my point actually was.

Let's get this straight - it's not based in the city is it? And therefore does not come with the stratospheric cost of living well there in terms of property. You would have to be utterly mad to base...

Speaking as someone who sits under 26L final approach, day in, day out during office hours, I can't remember if I've even seen a dedicated freighter come in/out of LGW. It's always struck me as a bit...

I live just slightly East of TW at almost the exact point where aircraft begin their left turn onto 26L. To be honest I've not noticed any increase in traffic in the last 5 years of living here and...

Whenever I've done that it has made absolutely no difference in terms of queueing time. What was previously a check in queue just becomes a bag drop queue instead.

But he wasn't. I know that area - he would have been approximately 800m laterally from aircraft on final for 26L at around 1300ft AGL. You tell me if that is legal. And what he was attempting to do...
