The condition of the runway which was the scene of yesterday's plane crash on the Isles of Scilly will be discussed by councillors today. It's thought the runway, which is half tarmac and half grass, is in need of "significant repair".
“Significant issues” with the main runway at St Mary's Airport were reported to the Council last September following a so-called grip test by the Civil Aviation Authority. This test identified that the runway was in very poor condition and had a likely life expectancy of 12 to 18 months.
