Recently I have flown in and out of Newcastle a number of times. I have been meaning for a little while to record my impression of Newcastle's airport. In simple terms, I was amazed at just how busy it has become.
I have always felt that Newcastle should become more of a hub. Truncated at it is from its natural New England heartland, it is still a natural rival to Sydney.
Well, based on my recent experience it seems to be getting there. Obviously Kingsford Smith dwarfs Newcastle and how. But the place is still growing!
