    It is. I note this bit:

    A new engine test facility (£1.7m) will come on stream, so the Flight Shed will be handed back to St Modwen in April 2011.

    That will be a big chunk of Longbridge history gone. Is it worth preserving?

    Also, looking at the site plan at the bottom of the page, the blue area marked Future Expansion Area (build for the BINI) would seem ideally positioned for a future BIW operation, feeding through the paint shop and into the GA building.

    I'm a little surprised how little is allocated to SAIC. Just one little wing of the purple building. Presumably the rest is all still in the hands of NAC.
