I am against night flights at Manston excepting for emergencies. My main reasons are:
1 My health - I have suffered sleep deprivation in the past and have no wish to go through that again for whatever reason
2 Manston as far as I can tell has plenty of spare capacity during the day and this should be used before night flights
3 Cargo planes are heavier and noisier than passenger planes
4 I do not see how having night flights at Manston will create that many more jobs, and is it really worth doing so many people more harm for such a sort sighted reason as creating about twenty jobs
5 When we first came to the area, Manston was NOT an airport it was an Aerodrome, we had much delight watching the fighter jets etc go over us , but this was perhaps once a week if that and NEVER at night. My family moved here for peace, quiet and beg you not to allow night flights which will in my view ruin a lovely area of Kent.
I am writing to make my case against the proposed night flights to or from Manston Airport.Read More »
