Mansion supporters are deaf to the truth

MYRA Jones dared to mention one of the few good things to result from Manston’s closure — less noise pollution over the Garden of England (Peace cornet to Herne Bay at last, Your views, May28). The abusive witch hunt directed at her in the letters the following week is typical of the bullying tactics of the Manston fan club. I’ve …

Peace comes at a high price for area

IN REPLY to Myra Jones comments (Peace comes to Herne Bay at last, Your views, May 28), how selfish an attitude she has, not sparing a thought for the poor people who have lost their jobs, let alone the impact it will have on many businesses that have built up over the years in Thanet, a much-deprived area. Keeping Manston …

If you don’t like the noise you can move

IT’S SUCH a shame Manston closed, it could have been a very good asset to Kent. As for Myra Jones of Herne Bay, her comments are selfish and stupid. The airport has been there for donkey’s years, why for God’s sake get a house near an airport in the first place? She-doesn’t give stuff about all the poor souls who …

I couldn’t disagree more with Myra

WITH respect, (Myra Jones) are you retired? No worries about finances? Did you buy your home knowing that Manston airport was there? We live in Herne Bay and my husband, ex RAF, loves the smell of aviation fuel, we don’t get it here. I personally am enthralled to see such huge planes in the sky. Also our history with Manston, …

What about those now unemployed?

IN LESS than two years, on May 25, 2016, Manston is due to celebrate 100 years of flying, but because of the actions of the ruthless Ann Gloag this may not happen. Under the pretence of developing the airport commercially it now appears that her intention was to expand her bank balance and almost her first action was to close …

Thanet needs jobs, not more houses

I WONDER if Myra Jones has given a thought about the staff at Manston airport who are all out of work, I hope she now likes sitting in her cosy little house in Herne Bay. There has been flying from Manston since the First World War, long before she was born. I hope Thanet council compulsory purchase the airport. Thanet …

Planes were noisier and closer in past

IN REPLY to the letter from Myra Jones (May 28, Your Views), one must assume that this lady is well in excess of 100 years old! Manston was established just after the First World War in 1915-16 and has been operational since then until now. Air traffic in the past has been much heavier than in recent years. I am …

Airport is part of our local heritage

I FEEL I must respond to the “In my opinion” a load of drivel by Myra Jones (Your Views, May 28). Having lived in the incoming flight path to Manston for many years, the noise level was minimal, and as for pollution and aviation fuels that is absolutely ridiculous. The airport and aircraft have been here for a lot longer …

Council must issue a CPO for Manston

MYRA Jones’ letter (Your views, Times, May 28) displays a selfish and typical ‘NIMBY’ attitude. Never mind the 150 people who have lost their jobs, never mind the many business that have had to close or relocate at great expense, never mind any one else, because I’m all right Jack. It’s like the city folk who move to the country …

Exaggerated claims on airport closure

I SUSPECT Myra Jones of Herne Bay has exaggerated somewhat her claim that peace and fresh air has returned to Herne Bay with the closure of Manston airport (Your views, Times, May 28). Has the difference realty been ‘phenomenal’, (extraordinary)? How many flights have used the runway daily on average in recent years? My impression is only one or two, …
