					           Liverpool John Lennon Airport Review – April 2007
                                                  AIRPORT NEWS/LATEST DEVELOPMENTS


                                                         Runway Resurfacing Complete

The £6 million improvement scheme to resurface Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s runway is now complete. The runway had been closed at night
from 23:30 until 06:00 for the last six months while a 200-strong workforce carried out the essential work. The work included the laying of a high-
grip asphalt on the surface of the runway and the renewal of the “shoulder” areas, which had been breaking up over recent years, leading to the
ban on heavier 4-engined aircraft such as Boeing 747s and Airbus A340s. The runway lighting has also been renewed.

Although the airport is planning further upgrades to its runway, including an extension as outlined in its 25-year Master Plan, the current upgrade
will once again allow Boeing 747s to visit. This is very good news as, thanks to Liverpool FC’s success in Europe, we will not have to wait long to
see one of these rolling down the runway again! In addition to the runway, taxiway Alpha (the parallel taxiway) is also being resurfaced, complete
with new taxiway lighting. This phase is expected to be completed by June.


                                Passenger "Eggstravaganza" at Liverpool John Lennon Airport during Easter

The Easter Bank Holiday weekend was forecast to be the busiest Easter ever with record numbers of passengers using Liverpool John Lennon
Airport. Around 61,000 passengers were expected to travel through JLA between Good Friday and Easter Monday - an increase of over 5%
compared to the same period last year. Recently confirmed by the Civil Aviation Authority as still one of the UK's fastest growing regional airports,
the Easter weekend at JLA was set to continue this trend with passengers from the North West and beyond setting off to sunnier climes or taking
in a spot of sightseeing over the holiday period.

Robin Tudor, General Manager - Corporate and Community Affairs at Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented: "This year we have an even
wider range of destinations available to suit a cross section of travellers. Already this week we have seen increased numbers of passengers using
the Airport as passengers from throughout the North West take advantage of the low fares and great deals available with airlines flying from
Liverpool."



                                                          SCHEDULED SERVICE NEWS

                                                     CURRENT AIRLINES/DESTINATIONS:

Ryanair commenced their three times a week service to Alicante from the 19th. As mentioned last month, this service is due to go daily from the 7th
May following the cessation of the four-times a week service to Tampere. Two destinations lost this month were Grenoble and Salzburg, which
both ceased on the 17th. The month saw quite a few different Boeing 737-800s, with five first-time visitors, namely EI-DPB, EI-DPK, EI-DPL, EI-
DPR and EI-DPT.

EasyJet has had another fairly quiet month, although from an enthusiasts point of view, the turnover in based Airbus A319s seems to have
increased, with 30 different examples appearing over the month. The main alteration this month has been to the Geneva flights, which have
reverted to easyJet Switzerland Airbus A319s being used f&t Geneva as EZY1483/1EX.

Flybe continue with their daily Southampton service, operated by ERJ-145s from Sunday to Friday and Dash-8s on Saturdays. The 28th saw the
service operated by G-JECV, which was making its first visit to Liverpool having only been registered just over a week before. Also on the 28 th, the
weekly Jersey service recommenced for the summer, the first flight being operated by Dash-8 G-JEDP.

EuroManx used a number of Aer Arann ATR-72s on the Isle of Man service during April. The normal aircraft EI-REJ operated for the first two
weeks of the month, but was noted passing through from Dublin to Sonderborg in the early hours of the 14 th as REA100M/101M and was not seen
again for the rest of the month. Instead, we had EI-REH (3rd, plus 17th – 20th), EI-RED (13th & 14th), EI-REF (14th – 17th), EI-REG (20th – 27th) and
EI-REI (27th – 30th). The Company’s own Dash-8s OE-HBB and OE-HBC also appeared during the month.

Nothing much to report from VLM for April, although the company has been continuing to push its Liverpool – London City service with a series of
adverts in the local papers. Wizz Air continues its successful operation and announced a fourth destination in early May. The airline stated that it
will start a three-times a week service to Bucharest from 1st October, with flights operating on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.



                                                           CHARTER/IT. FLIGHT NEWS

Starting with Liverpool FC’s European games, the team flew out to Eindhoven on the 2 nd using Titan Boeing 737-300 G-ZAPW, returning from
Brussels on the 4th aboard G-ZAPM. Supporters flew t&f Brussels aboard Monarch Airbus A300-600 G-MONR, which departed on the 3rd and
returned in the early hours of the 4th. The return leg at Anfield saw PSV Eindhoven and their fans using three different Transavia Boeing 737-800s.
PH-HZA brought the team in on the 10th and visited again on the 11th with fans. The 12th saw PH-HZD take the team out, while PH-HZV collected
the fans. Having overcome PSV Eindhoven, it was a case of deja vu, as Liverpool faced Chelsea in the semi-final. It would appear that the team
used Eastern Airways SAAB 2000 G-CDEA for their trip to/from Stamford Bridge. For the return leg, Chelsea arrived from Farnborough aboard
Blue Line Fokker 100 F-GNLG on the 30th. The match day was actually 1st May, so details of fans charters will appear in the next edition.
Staying with football charters – full credit must go to Charlton Athletic, who offered their fans subsidised flights to see the team’s crucial relegation
match against Blackburn Rovers on the 28th. As more and more supporters took up the offer (£65 return Gatwick – Liverpool), “Operation Ewood”,
as it became known, produced three wide-body Monarch Airbuses, namely A330-200 G-EOMA and A300-600s G-MAJS and G-OJMR.
Unfortunately for the fans, they witnessed a drubbing at the match, but the airport certainly benefited from the operation!

A charter to Lourdes was operated on the 8th by Monarch Airbus A321 G-OZBF. The return flight on the 15th was operated by G-OZBL. One
charter associated with the Grand National was Flightline MD-83 G-FLTL, which operated f&t Dublin on the 12th as FLT3341/334P. The return
flight on the 15th was operated by OE-LRW as FLT337P/3374.

The Tuesday Thomsonfly Alicante service was operated by Boeing 767-200 G-BYAA on the 17th, in place of the normal Boeing 757-200. The last
day of the month saw Boeing 757-200 G-BYAR position in in preparation for the commencement of their summer charter programme from 1 st May.
It has been reported that this will be the last year that we have a based Thomsonfly aircraft, with services being greatly reduced in summer 2008.

                                                                   FREIGHT NEWS

There were very few freight movements during April. Most notable was AeroVis Antonov An-12 UR-CFB, which visited f. Tallinn t. Shannon as
VIZ2385/2386 in the evening of the 5th. Arcus Air Dornier Do 228 D-CAAM visited f. Lahr t. Valciennes on the 12th as AZE22M/23M. Aero Nova
Metro III EC-GVE night-stopped on the 18th, routing f. Rotterdam t. Hanover as OVA K33/F31.

The TNT flights continue to be operated by Atlantic Electras during the week. The Friday evening TAY526H from Edinburgh to Liege did not
operate on the 6th due to the holiday, but it was flown the rest of the month by Spanish registered BAe 146s. There was also a Saturday morning
operation from Liege to Dublin on the 14th, 21st and 28th, operated by Belgian registered BAe 146s as TAY329V.

We had seven Manchester diversions on the 7th – the most interesting one being Air Malta Airbus 9H-AEO. The others were a British Airways
Boeing 737-400, Ryanair Boeing 737-800 and two Flybe Dash-8s and ERJ-145s. Other Manchester diversions during the month included Aurigny
ATR-72 G-BXTN on the 5th and bmi British Midland Airbus A319 G-DBCK on the 14th. The latter, a relatively new delivery, diverted due to the
runway at Manchester being blocked by an aircraft with burst tyres.

The rather anonymous Hercules, N3755P, often associated with CIA activity passed through the airport again this month. It night-stopped on the
16th, routing f. Athens t. Stephenville – the reverse route to which it took when it previously passed through in January.

We had a total of forty biz-jets this month, including the returning resident Citation G-VUEM (see Resident News). The undoubted highlight was the
appearance of a Mexican registered aircraft, which is a very rare sight at Liverpool and has got many people questioning just when we last had a
Mexican aircraft through Liverpool. Unfortunately I do not have a definitive answer! The aircraft involved was Challenger 601 XAJZL, which arrived
from Gander on the 14th and was the highlight of the Grand National Day visitors, although it was a pure coincidence and actually nothing to do
with the race meeting! It remained at Liverpool until the 16 th when it departed to Geneva. Other biz-jets of note included Swiss Challenger 604
HB-JRC (6th) and Canadian Learjet 35 C-GRFO (10th – 12th) Irish Gulfstream V EI-GDL was here for the duration of the Grand National meeting,
whilst other Gulfstreams this month included CS-DKC (1st) VP-BNE (16th – 17th) and the now regular N699HH (30th – 2nd May). We had two Falcon
10s this month – EC-HVV (10th – 12th) and SE-DYB (16th). Another biz-jet worthy of note this month was Citation X G-CEDK, which visited on the
20th, routing from Hawarden to Biggin Hill. The aircraft is set to be a regular, having just been registered to the Duke of Westminster as a
replacement for Citation VII VP-CGE.

Foreign GA visitors this month included a pair of PC-12s. HB-FOW night-stopped on the 7th, routing f. St. Moritz t. Zurich, while N660WB visited f&t
Waterford on the 14th in connection with the Grand National. We also had a pair of PA-46 Malibus this month. PH-RHB paid two visits on the 10th,
while N417RK appeared on the 12th. Former resident Mooney M20R OY-ELW arrived from Hawarden on the 27th and was still here at the time of
writing. Moving to UK registered aircraft in this category, the highlight was DH Dove G-OPLC, which visited f. Biggin Hill t. Cambridge on the 13th
and f. Elstree t. Biggin Hill the following day. Helicopter highlight this month was Bell 222 N40EA, which night-stopped on the 29th, routing f.
Shannon t. Den Helder.

                                                              MILITARY VISITORS

There were very few military movements during April, although we did have a few Tornados down the ILS (see main log). RAF visitors this month
consisted of a couple of helicopters. Puma HC1 XW226 visited f&t Cranwell on the 4th as SHF010. Sea King HAR3 ZE370 visited f&t Valley on the
15th as SRD122. Another unidentified Sea King visited in the early hours on the 26 th, routing from Barrow-in-Furness to Valley using the same
SRD122 callsign. Our only other military visitor this month was Irish Air Corps King Air 200 240, which visited f. Le Bourget t. Baldonnel on the
16th.


                                                                RESIDENT NEWS

German Cessna 172 D-EAGC, which departed to Mainz/Finthen in February, returned from there on the 9 th, presumably having been away for
maintenance. We also had some other returning residents this month. Schweizer 269 G-CEAW, which was briefly resident last August/September
returned to Liverpool on the 14th and is now operating from here, having previously been based at a location near Warton. The helicopter is owned
by Aerocorp Ltd., the same company that has R-44 G-CCTL based here and also G-CEMC, which visits from time-to-time.

Also returning this month was Citation 501 G-VUEM. Although not having been at Liverpool in its current guise, the aircraft is the former G-FLVU,
which departed to the USA in February 2006 and was re-registered in April of that year. The aircraft arrived via Reykjavik on the 22 nd and sports
the same livery as G-VUEA and G-VUEZ. Another potential returning resident this month is Mooney M20R Ovation OY-ELW, which arrived from
Hawarden on the 27th. The aircraft was based at Liverpool a few years ago and it may well be again – hopefully we will know more next month.

There were two brand-new residents arriving this month. Cirrus SR22 N902SR arrived from Weert on the 16th – and possibly has some connection
with Extra 400 D-ELRN, which often visits from that location. Our second new resident this month is Cherokee Archer G-BSIZ, which arrived from
Aberdeen on the 27th, The aircraft has been bought by the two CATS members who own Cessna 152 G-JONI, which is now reported as being up
for sale. Based Eurocopter EC120B Colibri G-FEDA has now acquired a very smart metallic blue and silver colour scheme.
          With the arrival of G-VUEM, there are now three Citations operating within AD Aviation fleet. Photograph – Adrian Thompson

NOTES: -
“n” alongside departure time = aircraft departed the next day
“+” alongside departure time = aircraft was here for more than one night – see Notes column for departure date.
The appearance of any “blank” departures in the Visitors Log indicates that we do not have the outbound details to hand at the time of uploading
the review. Details will either appear next month or in an amended version of this review uploaded at a later date.

Just a reminder that diversion details and arrival/departure locations that are not actual registered airfields are no longer included in the source
material used in compiling the airport log. Therefore, this information is now only included in the log where the details have been recorded and
verified from other sources. Go-around activity is now recorded again, but military serials can often be erroneous at source.

Another exceptional month, with well over 400,000 passengers carried in March, showing a rise of over 15% in comparison to March 2006 and a
10% rise overall for the last twelve months. Unfortunately there is little more to shout about with the freight figures dropping and actual aircraft
movements continuing to decline – although this is mostly due to less light aircraft activity at the airport.


                                                                     EPILOGUE


This month’s airliner highlights were the US Hercules, Ukrainian An-12, Flightline MD-83s, Transavia Boeing 737-800s and the Monarch Airbuses
(three A300s and an A330 in total). The biz-jet highlight was the Mexican Challenger, which must be a candidate for movement of the year. We
now look forward to May, which thanks to Liverpool FC’s success in getting through to the Champions League Cup Final in Athens promises us a
few days of movements which may eclipse the “Turkish Delight” operation of two years ago – and we now have a nice smooth runway that will take
Boeing 747s! All that, plus the start of Trans-Atlantic services, flights to Malta and all the summer charter flights – it’s going to be a busy month!
