What a joke! The distance between the two runways is only 300 m. Are you telling me that this kind of distance make any difference? This applies only when the planes land easterly, because when they take off westerly they steer right straight away to avoid Knutsford. Just another £million flushed down the toilet. When you buy an overpriced house just 4 miles off the biggest airport outside London, you should only expect more and more air traffic as the years pass. Where is my compo then? I have all the approach fly paths from over the Atlantic passing over my house in Middleton from as early as 5am to as late as 1am, when they land westerly. Should I send Camoron a petition like his rich fellas in Knutsford?
