Manston Airshow 2014 cancelled

Here is the link possibly not a good pr move from the new owners of the airport.  

The picture of the Vulcan XH483, at Manston taken on 4th August 1967 is from the book that I publish Twilight of the Pistons, see


  1. a shame that, what will Thanet do now!

  2. Perhaps we could have a boat show?

    On the bright side, this at least shows the new owners expect the airport to be too busy for an airshow so, if that is the case, maybe Manston is not such a dead duck after all. Oh, and before anyone bites my head off, please note I did say 'if' as a prefix to my comment, so it is not a prediction.

  3. ... or maybe it wont be an airport for much longer.

  4. Given Mrs Gloag's interest in property development I suspect she'll be getting planning permission for a few new houses... £1 doesn't seem too much to pay for the land.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
