From Newham Recorder:-
NEWHAM could have a second airport, of sorts. Drinks giant Red Bull wants to create a temporary aerodrome facility, including runway, at the Royals Business Park to use during their annual air races.
Development, according to their planning application published this week, also includes temporary buildings, structures and other works on the north side of Royal Albert Dock to include, helipads and taxiway, aircraft hangers and control tower. Councillors will be asked to approve the scheme to cover the spectacular air events that take place along the River Thames up to 2015
