Heathrow throwback

Locals and environmentalists are critical of the damaging effects a third runway at Heathrow could have. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s not the first time people have protested the airport’s extension plans… #tbt

    London already has enough capacity for Londoners so why not build a new airport or expand a regional airport to serve people who don't live in London

    Don’t live near one of the worlds busiest airports if you’re concerned about noise or air pollution

    WhT most fail to understand is by the time its built we will have electric planes so all the talk of pollution and noise is irrelevant

    Why not put Noise cameras on runways and fine Them if they exceed 70bd? Just sayin.... Last week on the BBC noise cameras to go on roads to catch noisy cars and motorcycles ! 100 cars with no exhausts are not as noisy as one plane

    Building another runway there is stupid. If e need more capacity, extend one other other existing airports around London, Gatwick, Stansted or Luton, and improve the transport links to the chosen one
