    Sgt will know more, but I'd say that, given the availability of other airports it's very unlikely that they'd choose to rely on military radars and crews for such a huge undertaking. On the positive side it would be good training and great PR if there were a few units out there observing operations.

      I remember that, got delayed in Manchester for 5 hours... managed to get on the plane at midnight finally.

      I thought the pilot was making excuses but apparently not...

        if its Transponder issues then neither the Flycatcher or Giraffe would be of any use to them. all that they will show is targets i.e. no identifiers, just blips on the screen.
        its a firmware issue apparently. the software was working fine.
