On the subject of expansions/new runways etc , EMA despite its popularity and record numbers of passengers still appears to be ' overlooked' by many.
It does not need a second runway but the current runway does need extending as many of us enthusiasts in the area agree, to cope with the increasing demands and the proposal of more cargo operators to use it or so I've heard from others.
EMA is great for plane-spotters , walking the dog along the trail, plus the airpark to visit and the surrounding cities to visit so why does it appear that its overlooked?( thats only my opinion ).
Even the Media discussion weeks ago admitted that the airport , which is considering being given a new name, isn't that well known in general.
Anyone out there who knows which airport i'm talking about?
