    There will be some traffic using the airport I'd have thought even after the closure of the main terminal. Helicopters for the nearby oil rigs take off from there and there are a fair few private planes/flying schools there.

    See what happens I suppose ;)

    Not to mention the Air Ambulance, thing is they can't find a buyer, Balfour Beatty own the land just as they own the old Pontins site which is now being cleared ready to build houses, so I'm pretty sure the airport will go the same way as house prices around those parts are worth a bob or two

    The word on the street is that the site will survive as an unlicensed airfield, so no commercial flights anymore.
