    Calls more transparency about numbers of commercial flights being used at RAF Northol

    Campaigners have demanded transparency about the number of commercial flights using a military airfield.

    Recent figures revealed by Parliament have shown that 18 per cent of the flights that travelled through RAF Northolt Airport, in Ruislip, during 2017 were military.

    Almost 70 per cent of flights fell into commercial hands.

    Gareth Thomas, MP for Harrow West fears the data shows the airfield’s shift to being a business airport for North West London.

    I wonder what the other 12% were?

        Good for business wouldn't you say? The landing fees would be handy in MoD coffers, if thats where they end up.
