Hi last year it was announced that Northolt would be closed for several months in Spring 2018 for runway works. Is this still going to happen?

Re: req for monday

For the record the Whirlwind is located behind the main gate. Go past the Chinook and just before the main gate is a car park on the left. This is for the shared civil/mil swimming pool, the Whirlwind is in front of you, not photographable.
