"God knows why the launch. Taking it a bit too far if we're going to scramble Q for every p*ssed up nutter on a transatlantic flight..."

If the pilot deems the risk necessary then he squawks 7500. Is this still an automatic launch of the QRA if it happens within the UK boundries or aircraft heading for them.

Do we know if the pilot did actually squawk 7500??
