Bought by the Scottish "Government" in 2013 for £1, it continues to make huge losses and now they want rid of it.

Anything further on Preswick ownership ? What is Nicola Sturgeons opinion on the best runway in Scotland ? After all she is a born and bread Ayrshire girl coming from Irvine as she does ! The problem is that Glasgow airport is closer to the Scottish population belt even though its runway is not in Prestwicks league in its ability to land and launch the world's largest aircraft fully laden. People would travel down the M77 >A77 without a thought if Glasgow was shut. Should the Scottish SNP not encourage the sale of Glasgow Airport for development land. It must be worth a fortune. If they made it worth while to the owners of Glasgow Airport it could happen ! Preswick has much more room for expansion to become the impressive aviation hub be-fitting an Independent Scotland !
