Stansted Airport appeal, the latest
Aleq In 2018 STN's local authority - Uttlesford Distriict Council (UDC) - then Conservative-dominated voted to approve STN's planning application that would allow the airport to grow from 35 mppa to 43 mppa. The following year the Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) won control of the council and members voted to return the application to the planning committee (I didn't know they could). This time they rejected the application despite their own planning officers recommending approval as did independent legal advice. MAG, the STN owners, mounted an appeal and the public enquiry element of the process began last month before three planning inspectors. According to MAG's QC at the enquiry an opposition group calling itself Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) was the driving force behind UDC's decision to revisit and subsequently reject the application. SSE has now fallen out with UDC which it says... .

Airport Construction & Expansion. What's happening and where
Aleq If anything, what we are seeing in the UK is largely a renewal of infrastructure already in place rather than new airports. Plans proposed by UK airports amount to a drop in the ocean compared with places like the U.S, India, China and Africa. In 2019 Beijing opened new Daxing International Airport which has the world's largest single terminal designed to handle more than 100 million passengers annually. Even if the UK closed all it's airports it would be futile economically and environmentally. The difference with China though is they are planting hundreds of millions of new trees across the country as part of a carbon offsetting program. .

Dazz needs our help with his Lego™ idea!
Aleq Hi fellow Avgeeks! What is it? I built a cockpit made of LEGO modelled off the Boeing 747. I am in the process of updating the interior colors and instrument panels to reflect the 400 model, so please don't yell at me lol. It took a month to do this so a lot of love went into it. How can avgeeks help? I submitted it to the Lego Ideas program where it could be made into an actual Lego set if it reaches 10K votes. As I'm writing this, it has 1.3K votes still a few votes to go. It would be awesome for fellow avgeeks to help support this and appreciate all the support it can get.

More Wizz Expansion From Liverpool
Aleq This being their 12th new route from Liverpool and the fact Wizz have moved away from the Manchester idea must be a boost for Liverpool Airport. So they are now serving both Black Sea resorts, hopefully they will look at other destinations and establish a base. Easyjet have not shown much creativity from Liverpool for sometime so frankly Wizz has plenty of destinations they could plumb for. Of course Ryanair who are still 4 aircraft based and EasyJet which is reduced to 6 I think, may well react, however I don't feel Wizz would be intimated by them as their base at Luton illustrates.

The Greatest Diversion Days Of Manchester Airport?
Aleq 8th February 1992 when the massed ranks of 747s came to Manchester, Woke up and heard the Nigerian A310 on frequency 121.025 being transferred to approach, Me and my brother made a relative beeline for the airport (as best you can when you've a 30 minute bus journey). He read the registrations and I noted them down. Here's the log I made and an indication where all the diversions parked.

The BHX Coronavirus Recovery
Aleq In the next 12-18 months we (hopefully) now have the return of Gibraltar, Athens, Lisbon, La Rochelle, Kalamata, Isle of Man and Banjul along with more to Amsterdam, Paris, Jersey and Barcelona. The bad news is Nice has gone from the Jet2 website and there are some doubts about Ryanair to Sofia and Vienna. Given that Cornwall is predicted to have a bumper summer this year it's really annoying that we have no Newquay service. Capacity is down quite a bit on some routes with plenty more still missing but given where we are at the moment I think it's been a decent few weeks for BHX
