Chemical weapon V-1s in Alderney ‘fantasy’

CONCERNS over the continuing availability of fuel at Alderney Airport were expressed at the January people’s meeting. Guernsey Airport, which operates Alderney Airport, last month invited expressions of interest from suppliers of Avgas and Jet A1 fuel that might be prepared to take over the supply of fuel at Alderney Airport from April 2016. Alderney Electricity has operated the fuel supply at the airport since 2006, when it took over from a private enterprise. But the company has frequently expressed a wish to jettison the service due to lack of profit making.

CLAIMS that occupied Alderney was being prepared to be a base for attacks on the UK using V-1 ‘doodlebug’ missiles, armed with warheads containing deadly chemicals, have been described as ‘utter nonsense’ by an expert on the island’s occupation.
