I think most of the freight flights moved to East Midlands. Thomson Fly did occasional fly a B757 into Coventry, thik that was the largest aircraft to land there. Once Thomson Fly and Wizz pulled out that was the end of commercial flights, now its just general aviation.I am just enquirying, Coventry Airport use to have high volume of Jumbo Flights and Cargo.
Do these now use Birmingham Cargo and why on earth did they close Coventry Airport it was superb and just needed a terminal building to expand in flights.

Nice video although why it starts with "One of Britain's great surprises" I do not know, it's only what us residents have known all along
The video is excellent. Sure the great surprise phrase is a bit dated, but like Shropshire, being the surprise is the city's attractions. We are not ostentatious. We may do not shout every 5 minutes how brilliant we are. We don't make sure our streets are on TV every night. We just get on with it, enjoy our lives and we just know. and everyone I know who has visited says the same thing: the place is amazingNice video although why it starts with "One of Britain's great surprises" I do not know, it's only what us residents have known all along
Was in the Jewellery Quarter on Saturday enjoying a few pints of delicious ale, there are some great pubs in the area. The train into New Street took around 10 mins and we then jumped straight onto a tram which was ready and waiting, in previous years I'd have either had to walk all the way from New St or transfer to Moor St and get the heavy rail from there. The Metro has made such a difference, I can't wait for the Eastside extension to get underway. Father-in-Law was well impressed and he's from Sheffield where they've had trams for years, I think the wait on the platform at Lea Hall was longer than the actually journey
