Meeting with the Managing Director this morning to discuss flight noise -with particular reference to Valley Park and Chandlers Ford. Now have lots of work to do feeding back to constituents. The good news is that most people should notice an improvement over the next year because the small planes have now gone (they were responsible for a large number of complaints) and the budget airlines are introducing (supposedly) quieter planes.

Key message was that anyone with a complaint should keep precise details of times etc as it is now much easier to establish exactly which plane was where at what time because of a new tracking system.
Airport was packed because of the fog and as I left people were being bussed to Bournemouth. Five minutes down the road and it was bright sunshine!
