I think there's a lot of conclusions being made on this thread based on rumours and conjecture. GJD are one of several aircraft owners at Bruntingthorpe and differ in that they are also a day today business. There are many reasons they may or may not leave Bruntingthorpe, and not all of these may relate to the airfield, its other uses or its owners. As others have pointed out, Gary Spoors owns aircraft dotted around the country, so if GJD moved, why should there necessarily be any threat to all his airframes at Bruntingthorpe?
Maybe it's actually best, like in many cases, to actually wait and see what's actually happening.
No conclusions drawn by me, simply asked the question, and it has been answered, and I'm relieved to see in a positive fashion. 241 is very dear to me personally and I'm delighted whatever business decisions are afoot do not affect the status of the aircraft at Brunty. When it comes down to it that's what most of us are worried about and uncertainty can breed a little worry. I'm glad to hear the confirmation '241 is secure and wish Gary well in his business endeavours.
