Plane and simple.
Never mentioned this before but...
... we live five minutes from Terminal 5. And I have to say, I love it.
Planes come right over our house all day. Some of them are so big and bank so early it looks like they're gonna take the roof off the kitchen.
It doesn't bother me in the slightest, in fact it never fails to make me wonder what a feat of engineering they are.
Third runway or not? Frankly I don't know enough about it either way to comment. Obviously I am aware there is environmental and local opposition to the idea but then again Heathrow needs to keep apace with the rest of the world.
Jobs will be created but peoples' afternoons in the garden will be disrupted. Trees will die but more passengers will get to go where they want. What a dilemma!
How about anyone who doesn't like planes swaps houses with people who do like planes? The biggest swaparam ever.
Surely there are enough of both. How about Heathrow pick a place in the world ten times the size of their site and become responsible for planting and tending.
The world will move forward, it's the only way it knows how, apart from going round and round of course.
Someone has to come up with a win/win, otherwise some dudes is gonna be deeply unhappy. But then again some dudes "want" to be unhappy. Never quite got that myself.
Happy Birthday Bing- oh- it's your birthday.
