Glasgow bids for Aircraft depot

Glasgow airport is trying to attract bids to build a new maintenance Airline depot on spare ground at the airport.

Glasgow has many highly trained mechanics who lost jobs during the British Aerospace rundown.

The airport is ONE hour closer to most of the USA routes into Scotland and England, and would make a cheaper location that siting at Heathrow which is an extra hours flight time away.

Of course, the London run Civil Aviation Authority has to say yes first of all.

Another fine example of Scotlands destiny being determined from without its border!
