Re: Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield News Thread

G-CLAA has indeed been in for training. To and from Prestwick I believe. It was also the first 747 to be positioned on stand like other aircraft facing the terminal. They have invested in a tow (or push back) bar.

I know DSA has always been popular for training but fingers crossed CLA are looking into using DSA as a base in the future. The investment in a tow bar is interesting news.

Still no way for London "Heathrow" third runway.

Ciao my friends. Continuing to read Airliner World February 2016 issue, there is an article about the never ending story of the third runway at one of the most important airports of the world, London "Heathrow". We all know the importance of this airport, once the busiest of the world (now the 6th), 74 million passengers, an hub for the entire planet, but it is struggling against the rise of traffic, the slots and its only two runways.
Many projects were on the table, from "Boris Island" ( a complete new airport close to Tames estuary, strongly wanted by London Major Boris Johnson) to London "Gatwick" second runway, to strengthen airports like London "Stansted" and London "Luton", but the most realistic option remains a construction of a third runway for Heathrow, according to the pollution and noise restrictions and, of course (and maybe the most important thing), the situation of the thousand people living around the airport.
As Mr. Willie Walsh says (CEO of IAG group, British Airways/Iberia/Aer Lingus), if Heathrow will not have a third runway many airlines are ready to search expansion in other airports, BUT Heathrow IS Heathrow and it will remain the most important hub of UK and one of the most important airports of the world. But it is loosing importance because of the traffic congestion and the very few slots, especially against airports of the USA and the Far East, and after 40 years of debates the British politicians still did not reach an agreement and a solution to this big problem.
The decision for the third runway will be take in summer...

Re: Still no way for London "Heathrow" third runway.

As a Brit, I follow the whole Heathrow saga, what airliner world wont say is the whole story.

It's purely a political decision, the London Mayor elections are this year and have used the cover of another emissions survey (which the city itself has failed but the airport has passed) so the Prime Minister can get his partys mayoral candidate to a possible win and then the Heathrow decision will be made.

Re: Still no way for London "Heathrow" third runway.

A third runway and sixth terminal have been a cut-and-dried decision for years. Just like T5 was during the 'public consultation'.

Re: Still no way for London "Heathrow" third runway.

Is Heathrow that busy? I'm joking folks,I know it is at max capacity. You don't want to miss your LHR slot time.

Re: Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield News Thread

***A news round up of the last few weeks at DSA.***

The An124 visited yet again on the 20th January and again on the 9th February, along with an Antonov Airlines AN74 on 20th Jan.

On the 10th February 5N-FGT, a Nigerian Air Force B737-700 arrived with an entourage who warranted limousines and private cars - be good if anyone could shed some light on this. Easyjet A319 G-EZPG also spent the day doing circuits before heading back to Gatwick in the evening.

Saturday 13th February saw DSA visited by G-JMCM, a West Atlantic B737-300F who also visited in January.

On Sunday 14th Emirates Sky Cargo B777F A6-EFS flew a scheduled service into DSA from Dubai World Central before departing out to Brussels this evening.

Re: Still no way for London "Heathrow" third runway.

I think London is one of the few cities that have the chance to have more than one international Airport in its surrouding... Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and donīt forget London City... All those airports are playing somehow a "different role" for passangers. Building a new airport is almost impossible from an economical and political view... I think traffic will be split up a little bit (that doesnīt mean that Heathrow will get smaller), but the other Airports are gonna gain more Pax.
