Think it was about 1500z (very ish). Problem seemed to be rectified pretty smartish, so very little in the way of a knock on effect at our gaff.

Sat in the middle of that yesterday myself. Had a short slot that converted to an hour. Felt very sorry for the guys who had no slot and were informed that departures would occour on a slot basis and that they were now at the back of the queue.

All got better shortly after as we passed 10,000'

Apparently mct radar went T***s up. I was sat on the ground for about an hour and half because they suspended all departures. If we had missed our slot we could have encountered a 4 hour delay!! This was on Wednesday by the way!

First flight of latest NIMROD in formation with escorts- Woodford to Warton in the afternoon. Caused us to hold but was successful. Could this be the answer?
