Runway Watch - Tuesday 25 February 2014

A view of the new Runway 33 Threshold after it was moved to a point some 300 metres
to the south adjacent to holding point Echo 1 with the new approach/glide path to
Runway 33 coming into operation at 0600 on Thursday 6 February 2014

Work on the (basic) runway extension has now been completed - the final surface
will go on as part of the on-going runway resurfacing project - with work continuing
on landscaping the adjacent area with the top soil the last layer to go on

A view back along the Runway Extension site with Bickenhill Church in the distance

Another view of the on-going earthworks with the new ATC Tower in the background

The new Runway 33 ILS which will in future be located to the west of the runway undergoing
checks before the aerial was lifted into place on Thursday 27 February 2014....

.... and a look down Runway 33 from the start of the Runway Extension
