A further update from battenfobs on SSC - possibly some of his last as he will shortly be moving to work away from the T2X project.

I assume, dangerous I know, that these are escalators from the Pier (main terminal) level to the bussing lounges.

I knew I had taken this photo but then couldn't find it!!

This shows a close up of the head-of-stand work of the Pier 2 remotes. You can see the post for the stand guidance system (Safedock) together with what I believe might be the ground power unit.

I'm sure all will become clear at some point with the strange numbering of the new Pier 2 remotes 929, 221, 215, 223.

Yes I agree with regards to stands 215 & 221 which appear on the current Manchester chart and presumably 213 will be between 215 and the terminal. 221 seems to be an "odd man out". I understand that all of the 900 stands in the area currently under construction opposite Pier 1 and then swinging around to where the '70s' are currently located - I don't believe that 929 has anything to do with Pier 2.

As I'm up at the airport at present I now see that Stand 929 is in fact a reality. I'll try to discover exactly why it is there in such an "out of sequence" place!!

Hopefully more to follow after lunch.

Can you please let us know where Stand 929 is because I haven't seen a plan showing this particular stand but have for most of the others

My apologies for the delay in responding to the question about Stand 929.

As I explained earlier I was up at the airport and I had hoped to get an answer to the question in hand - unfortunately my contact wasn't available.

** clicking on the image will enlarge it **
Stand 929 is located between stand 215 and the terminal on the chart below.

So stand 929 is nearest to the terminal

Next is stand 215 but with the board for 223 seeming to be located immediately in front of it

Next is stand 221

Thanks Scottie

All a bit odd but no doubt all will be revealed in due course

Stand numbers starting with 9 are indeed temporary.
Many thanks for that info which is much appreciated. I do query it, slightly, as I understood that the early 900s will be the remotes off new taxi-lane Lima on the west side of pier one.

I also understood that the remotes would be 9XX. If you look at the plan showing the works shedule as posted by you a while back West Gate would be 931,933 and 955! and those near the old TCX hangar 940 and 942. After all works are completed they could be renumbered but what would be the point.

On the subject of inconsistent's with the nunbering of stands, where has stand 3 gone? I noticed pier B facing T3 goes from stands, 1-11 and then 15...

I think you're right as stands 1, 3, 5 were fine for Fokkers and BAC 1-11s but when the A320 family started to arrive there was a problem with wingtip clearance and so Stand 3 was removed - I must be beating any age-related memory loss :ROFLMAO::sleep::sleep:
