View Full Version : Security Exercise at Prestwick?

Anyone know why a 747 freighter ( MK airlines I think ) was being escorted into Prestwick by a Tornado F3 yesterday morning (28th)? Some sort of exercise maybe - the F3 held overhead for some time after the 747 landed.

Yes, exercise. MK 747 escorted in, then departed to Luxembourg. The grounded former Polar 747 has been repainted with MK titles as the focus of the exercise, on runway 21, for 3 days.

After the last few balls ups at Prestwick I reckon they could do with some practice, did they let the pretend passengers off this time I wonder?.
