Plane lands in Manston

People living in Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Manston turned out to a meeting held by KIA chief Matt Shark.

The meeting, organised by the Green Organisation Building a Better Sunnier Happier Tomorrow (GOBSHT), was to discuss the increasing worry of residents that planes were using the airport.

Ramsgate resident Sid McVity said: "When we moved here we never once dreamed that a plane might take off and fly over Ramsgate and then land at the airport."

"How can we possibly allow an airport to exist?"

The room erupted with roars of support before Chastity Mong stood up to say her prerecorded piece.

She said: "At this time of day when we're all looking to plant carrots and look after our sheep how can we possibly allow an airport to exist polluting the grass with wind and generally flying around a lot in the air stopping conversations like what we are having now."

At this point a plane went over drowning out the final 35 minutes or her speech but the enthusiastic crowd began throwing their hats in the air and waving banners reading "KIA: No way"

"I just couldn't stand it any longer."

Elderly resident Nicky Manly, 72, spoke of his continued pain living in Acol.

He said: "One day I was about to post a letter when I heard a plane overhead. Despite my recent praise for helping boost Thanet's economy and offering relatively cheap and exciting holidays to destinations from a-far-a-field as Jersey, I just couldn't stand it any longer. When I moved here in 2006 I just never thought it would happen."

Matt Sharke closed the meeting by driving a plane into the building.
