Campaigners oppose Heathrow runway

An aircraft campaigning organisation, HACAN ClearSkies, have opposed Heathrow's new plans to build a third runway to the south west of the airport.

It wouldcreate less noise disturbance than a northern runway but we will oppose itbecause a whole new runway of planes will be massively disturbing to vastswathes of people across London and the South East. Flightnumbers will rise from 480,000 a year to over 700,000.”.

– John Stewart, Chair of HACAN ClearSkies
