    I would just like to put on record, that neither of the resolutions “passed” at the Town Hall meeting have been conveyed by the organisers to Council (or Councillors), either formally or informally before Council met on Monday.

    Most grateful to Ch9 for their excellent coverage of the meeting. I was unable to be present on the night so Ch9s efforts were much appreciated.
    Hopefully, someone recorded it onto a disk for Rodney Hide.

    I note that Michael Stedman said: “Yesterday, we read about 747’s coming from Shanghai. Yeah right!”

    Well, wrong actually.

    Boeing 777 ER’s? Maybe.

    I am surprised that someone who is a frequent traveller (especially to China) did not recognise a possible error! And perhaps check it out!


    Anyway, for the record. No-one at DIAL including myself have said any such thing.

    Airlines that may require a longer runway to service Dunedin, do not fly 747’s having modern fleets using such aircraft as Airbus 330’s/340’s and Boeing 777 ER (extended range). Modelling of any extension would be done on those and similar aircraft.
