From Andrew Wilby
It is thus obvious that I have a strong professional interest in the project.
It was clear to me before the closure that Manston had not been subject to appropriate investment. This lead to frustrating and unacceptable operational delays.
The Applicant’s proposals have taken this into account and I can confirm that several rather technical ATC issues have been addressed in their plans.
In order to secure employment, I have had to accept a post that does not use one of my ATC ratings.
I am quite shocked that a nearly 3km long runway, 61m wide in the SE of the UK could potentially be allowed to be lost to aviation.
