Today's DfT statement on aviation policy includes this phrase:
"If operational freedoms show
clear benefits in terms of resilience, reducing delays and allowing
planes to land more effectively, thereby reducing the impact of noise
for residents under the flight path, then the Government will consult on
making these benefits permanent;"
I'm only an ignorant railwayman, but what does "land planes more
Is an "ineffective landing" what Biggles might call a 'prang'?
