Green vs Greed

Ruritanian-based airport operator Infidel has thrown caution to the wind and is sniffing around Thanet, looking for an airport to buy.

Are there any activities which might be prevented at Manston on environmental grounds?

All you’ll need is a splash of greenwash, and you’ll be home and dry!
