According to the BBC 'Around 700 extra airliners and more than 3,000 executive jets are expected to fly in and out of airports in the South East for three weeks before, during and after the Olympics.'
That's a lot of extra traffic in an area which is already operating at near its upper limit where take-offs and landings are concerned.
The big worry (apart from the obvious one) is that private aircraft will stray into the temporarily expanded controlled air space, and give RAF response pilots a real challenge in terms of 'is it or isn't it?' when trying to decide about terrorist threats. Kevin and his wife, out for a quick spin in the Cessna, might be in for a nasty shock as a couple of Typhoons come bucketing towards them at low altitude.
For that sought of experience, try flying between South America and the Caribbean over Cuban airspace. Nothing like waving to the suddenly appearing and very close MIG fighter pilots, who are waving back, who then disappear as fast as they arrived.
I often wondered what would happen, if one of these pilot's had a dizzy spell or pure hatred for foreigner's?.
