Glasgow Airport exterior

Such is the devastating impact of the pandemic on the industry, in normal circumstances we’d never be able to do something like this on what is a busy airfield.

More importantly, Glasgow Airport alone has lost a third of its workforce across the 100 + companies that make up our campus (6000 people down to 4000).

Aviation is not just about holidays. We’re an island nation that aviation plays an important role in connecting Scotland with the rest of the world – whether for importing or exporting of goods, people doing business, in-bound tourism or reconnecting people with loved ones who live abroad.

Today Glasgow Airport will welcome approximately 3,000 people mostly travelling on domestic routes. During the same day in 2019 it would welcome over 34,000.

Throughout the pandemic our airports have stayed open at a loss of £3m per month to support lifeline services including:

    • flights to the Scottish Islands
    • Air ambulance operations
    • Vital PPE and medical supply deliveries
    • Critical domestic and international connectivity used by key workers and crucial sectors such as oil and gas
    • Military flights

We asked our friends to create a beautiful video of the Mile End Mill at Seedhill Paisley and the Chimney that dominates the skyline. Sit back and enjoy what you won’t see from the ground.

 

Fantastic view right around the Paisley Grammar Campus, soon to be (if planning has its way) moved to Renfrew Road and the Chivas building location.

This small video was taken in and around Paisley for us by Paisley Buddie Drone Flights (no drones were used this time).

It shows a lot of local landmarks and is created in a way which is called motion capture, sit back and enjoy. This is the first video they have created so lessons learned and they will only get better…

Live at Thomas Coats Memorial as part of the 100 Days to Save Coats, LNP Promotions put on a gig which just blew all 700 members of the audience away with her intimate connection with the public through music, there was wit, storytelling and even history about the Bard himself Robert Burns all in the setting of the Gothic style Thomas Coats Memorial.

The Building is doing lots of events and next weekend is the penultimate weekend with mass choirs all with an aim to ask the public for donations to save this historic and beautiful building. Here is some footage from last night thanks to Paisley Buddie Drones and Brian McGuire.

We must thank LNP Promotions, Gary Kerr, Tommy McGrory and so many more volunteers for giving us access last night so we could promote the event afterwards via video and photographs to the public. I hope you enjoy this small video we made last night.
