Time really is marching on! It seems no time at all since winter began, but already this week we started clearing the runway ready for the arrival of the first aircraft, which is due in just over a fortnight. Jack and Rob took on the task of manning the two massive JCB tractors, each with an equally massive V8 powered snow-blower attachment. They made the most of a strong breeze to chuck the blown snow as far away as possible, while I made the most of the bright sunshine to take photographs.
