Hi folks. I am John. Live in Kent not far from Manston airport. LIke many in the area we are hoping to see Manston rise again from the ashes to offer passenger flights around Europe as it once did. There sometimes seems to be slow progress being made in that direction ..... but oh, so slow !

FRANCIS: Now, this is the palace in Caesar's Square. Our commando unit will approach from Fish Street, under cover of night, and make our way to the northwestern main drain. If questioned, we are sewage workers on our way to a conference. Reg, our glorious leader and founder of the P.F.J., will be coordinating consultant at the drain head, though he himself will not be taking part in any terrorist action, as he has a bad back.
BRIAN: Aren't you going to come with us? REG: Solidarity, brother. BRIAN: Oh, yes. Solidarity, Reg.
FRANCIS: Once in the sewer, timing will be of the essence. There is a Roman feast later in the evening, so we must move fast, and don't wear your best sandals. Turning left here, we enter the Caesar-Augustus memorial sewer and from there, proceed directly to the hypocaust.

Thanks for the welcome messages. I'll keep an eye on Manston progress, and post if anything interesting happens.

Cheers all, John.
