Red Bull VS London City Airport

Great article by James Ranger in the Wanstead & Woodford Guardian today.

Interesting comment from London City Airport too:

"A letter of objection was submitted by the airport in March 2010 to London Borough of Newham opposing Red Bull’s application.

“The comments made by Plane Stupid are totally inaccurate and do not reflect the airport’s position.”

It is very strange they didn't mention the whole story: At the London City Airport Consultative committee just a couple of weeks ago, the airport representative, Gary Hodgetts, allegedly stated they were currently ''in discussions with Red Bull over the application'' - but if the airport have objected what is there to discuss? 

Of course London City Airport is no stranger to objecting to developments around it, and then withdrawing those objections for various reasons: Columbus Tower and also Crossrail. Compensation was sought over Crossrail. 

Watch this space.
