The Prime Minister has today said the government will do everything it can to keep Manston airport open - but has warned any final decision will ultimately be one that is taken by the owners.
David Cameron was responding to a question tabled by Thanet North MP Sir Roger Gale at this afternoon's Prime Minister's questions.
Simon Moores, from WestGate, chief pilot at Airads, was also due to fly a banner with the words Save Manston attached to his aircraft.
He said today: "It's really an expression of solidarity with the airport and the people who work for the airport.
"I've got a load of friends there - I learned to fly there, as did a lot of the Red Arrows too.
"Anything I can do that can show an expression of support that Manston might find a solution I am happy to do."
