Well, knowing how the media operates in these matters, I wouldn't be surprised if they came no closer than several miles apart!

600ft vertical, 3 miles horizontal was the last I heard.

Hardly pant-wetting, but an infringement of separation standards nonetheless.

Will be interesting to see what the papers make of it tomorrow.

Again the media trying to over hype a story. Like someone said a while ago, when the Queen goes to the doctor for a check up or breaks her nail, "Queen Enters ER Now In Stable Condition" Will run across headlines. There was probably a slight mis-communitation error causing the infringement but not enough to endanger the a/c in which the royal family member was aboard.

Thanks again.

Nothing personal Kate . . . I also saw the news item quite early, but decided not to post it being RAF related! Keep up the postings!

Bon Voyages from an ex 'BOAC Air Cabin Crew member' 1961-1966, on Britannias for 2 years, then 707s around the world, with each trip a memorable 21 days!
