    No not at all, they don't operate a fracture railway system in Norway like the UK, hence it works !

Memories of Airlines No Longer Flying
  • 1,379
  • 55
I loved seeing the BKS and Northeast Tridents, both airlines being effectively based at LBA, although the Tridents never came here due to our rather short runway in those days. It is quite sad really to see all those airlines that have come and gone, and that list is only scratching the surface. There have been hundreds of airlines over the years that have disappeared, and just the list that have operated to Leeds and disappeared since, would be very long. The VC10 was a fantastic aircraft and it was such as shame it was eclipsed in popularity by the 707, although that itself was also a...

Having managed to get a day return to Palma from Birmingham last September for £65 with Monarch just before they went bust I decided to see if it was still possible this year.I have not flown abroad this year since January due to surgery and a long recovery so was looking forward to a break.Having searched airline timetables and price comparison websites a day return out with Thomas Cook and back with Jet2 was possible on certain weekdays.The best price was for 11th October out 0600/0900 for £30 back 2110/2250 for £50 with extra for window seats and breakfast out. I compiled a timetable...

Hi guys and gals out there. Do we have any forum members who participate on Infinite Flight? I'm trying to establish if we have any Forums4airports users who use Infinite Flight Live so we can have a forum meet-up at an airport we choose on here? Those of you who are not familiar, Infinite Flight is available for both Android and Apple devices. Charges apply for aircraft types, regions and to use Infinite Flight Live. Example Infinite Flight:
Which is the smallest airport you have flown from?

What is the smallest airport you have flown from? For me it was the Bristol and Gloucestershire Gliding Club at Nympsfield in the Cotswolds above the Severn Vale near Stroud in Gloucestershire. My first and so far only glider trip was in a Schleicher KA-13 which was towed into the air and the pilot, who was brave enough to let me 'have a go' for few minutes, kept us circling, riding the thermals for nearly an hour. More recently I was taken up in a Tiger Moth from what is perhaps pretentiously called Torquay Airport in Victoria, Australia. It's a grass strip but the company running it...

Primarily a Friday and Saturday night thread for people to discuss their favourite tipples. Their latest Gin or Whisky collection or maybe the local ale.
Global Warming or Global Cooling?

What are your thoughts on climate change? For the last two decades at lest we have been spoon fed a global warming agenda, "the Earth is burning up", our "use of fossil fuels is causing Co2 to spiral out of control". More recently the IPCC lead by the United Nations released a report saying we have to take immediate action to save the planet from catastrophe. During the 90's I went along with this narrative. As a person who has always been interested in weather and the climate I have always followed the subject with much interest and like most people I went along with the idea that man...
Brexit

Leave meant many different things to different people at the time of the 2016 referendum and for many Leave voters it meant something entirely different to the governments own interpretation of Leave which is what Teresa Mays deal is. The Conservative government itself is split for exactly the same reason as they interpret the vote in a different way. That was the biggest problem with the In or Out option as the vote didn't mention things like the Good Friday agreement. The Leavers quickly start dropping off when out means x, y or z. Remain means just one thing.

What the hell is Prince Phillip doing at the age of 98 driving a range rover. ;-(

True, TCX has seen better days but their LBA offering was already on its arse so there's no excuse to have lost what little was left. At least Bill Savage secured a base from the then Airtours, and Britannia/Thomson. Now all lost. Meeson must be laughing. I really don't understand how Jet2 - a relative newcomer - seem to be able to get it right and the elder statesmen can only cut and run. Backhanders, maybe ?

Is it just me, or has LBA achieved nothing since David Outlaws and his gang have been in charge ? Terminal improvements aside, which are a legacy of the previous management, the airport just keeps on losing business. If I was AMP, I would be putting the genial Geordie on notice just now.
Is anybody feeling christmassy yet ? Im not ;-( Maybe some mulled wine will help with proceedings ??
