Heard a rumour that the new stands cannot be used as they got some parking and distance between wingtip calculations totally wrong. And access for buses to drop of the passengers is also tight. Red faces?Latest aircraft stands
I drove past the airport today on top of a double-decker bus (the U2 that gives a splendid view from the top deck of the entire airfield as it passes along the A38) and noticed that the area on which two aircraft stands were constructed last winter on the former staff car park in front of the old terminal building (OTB) seems to have reverted to a car park. There were dozens of cars parked there when I passed by.
I had heard that the OTB was to be demolished this winter to make way for further aircraft stands. Is that now going ahead given that the latest stands currently appear to be redundant?
