Nothing changes does it!? Leuchars and bad traffic go hand in hand every year.
I've got recollections of sitting in queue's both to get in an out in previous years. Arriving just as the Russian Knight's were coming into land, being stuck in the airfield as the light starts to fade!
After the Russian Knight's year we ended up arriving and leaving from the North which didn't seem to be quite as bad.
From my seat on the crowdline it seemed like the traffic from the South were being taken into Leuchars itself, as I didn't see the usual snake of cars going round the inside of the the base - is that correct?
Heard someone opposite me at work saying they joined a queue outside Cupar at 9:30 and got into the car park at 1
Last time I took the car I left the crowdline at approx 4:00 and took almost 2 hours to get out the car park. From memory most of the problems seem to be caused by people coming out of each car park section into 1 queue to get out and completely no management of the queue's making sure each one get's a fair go.
This year and last year I drove to Dundee and got the train which wasn't too bad. Did mean I was at the gates in time for them opening (had someone found the right key) and got away alright. It is a bit of a walk from the station and the organisation there wasn't brilliant. Train to Dundee left half empty and then they tried to cram everyone onto a 3 carriage train to Aberdeen leaving half the people on the station. I'm sure they could have organised it so that those only travelling to Dundee could have boarded the Dundee train.
In terms of the P&R when did the buses start? Only thing that put me off was the thought of turning up at the car park early and having to wait for the first bus to fill before leaving - like to be there for opening.
