Stating the obvious: pilots back expansion

Top gun

Are you sitting comfortably? If not, you might want to sit down for this one, because it's a shocker. Apparently pilots would like another runway at Heathrow!

Nope, I didn't expect that one either. I mean, who'd have thought it? It's almost as left-field as arms dealers voting for a war, or the government awarding itself another pay rise. You wouldn't see that coming either, would you?

Apparently pilots have been doing special flight path maneouvres to reduce emissions, and are "using their professional skills in a number of other ways to minimise fuel consumption, cut emissions and reduce noise." Sounds great guys, but it's just greenwash. How about leaving the planes at home, eh? That's the only sure-fire way to cut emissions...
