Iím not sure of the relevance of your comment - can you fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge?

Plessey Watchman primary radar with modern processing systems. A fair few locally trained ATCOs on the staff, including at least two Watch Managers. I'm not sure if there is a unit manager or SATCO in place at the moment. Also, LBA is on top of a hill so gets whatever weather the Atlantic and the Pennines can throw at it ! On the plus side, the airfield can be sitting in the clear while everywhere else is shrouded in fog.

Just seen this, thank you for your insight.
