Heavens Above

I see that the low cost carrier, EUjet will soon be flying to multiple European destinations from the end of this summer. From my front door to the airport in five minutes sounds pretty attractive but I’m wondering where at Manston airport, they are going to park the cars of a half million passengers a year? There’s barely enough room to service the Spitfire museum, so perhaps I’ll need to take my bicycle instead?

Being adventurous, I've booked a weekend to Nice in September for the family on my wife's birthday. The price twenty-four pounds return + taxes and everything can be done online, on the EUJet website, except the bicycles that is.

Another thought is the increased volume of aircraft. I found myself sharing the same airspace as three 747’s last weekend, which was OK because I ducked underneath them along the coast at five hundred feet, while still working Manston tower. However, if it’s going to get busier, it’s bound to get noisier and this bothers residents on the runway approaches at Ramsgate (RW28) and Birchington and St Nicholas (RW10).

Anyway, I was up today taking photos for people, and shots of my own house in Westgate Bay Avenue, which have come out better than expected.
