Another first for Firbeck in October when the new international airport opens. It will be situated on the old airfield and will be operating 20 flights a day.

Residents worried about the noise have no need to worry as the whole area has been sound proofed.

Simon Knight-Weasel using sound recording equipment to test the sound proofing was utterley amazed, a DC10 in full throttle, sounds like the slightest tummy rumble.

I will definitely be using the daily Firbeck to Inverness flight to pick wild heather.
