No Radar

No radar service from Manston this morning, as I plunged into a bank of fog sitting off the coast at Herne Bay on my way towards Leeds Bradford airport. In fact no radar service from anyone, as Southend's wasn't open at that time.

One rather takes something for granted until suddenly it's not there anymore and all of a sudden, there's a black hole where local air traffic control over Kent used to be!

Same on the way home this afternoon, once I've left Southend Approach behind me at Sheerness there's nobody to talk to anymore that's of any real use. Meanwhile, no news about any impending Manston airport rescue package, only rumour and speculation. If I hear anything you'll be the first to know!
