how do you explain that to your passengers?
"uhhh ladies and gentleman if you look out the left side of the aircraft, you'll notice we have a friendly wingman escorting us to Halifax because I set the wrong Squawk code on the transponder. We hope you enjoy the rest of the flight thanks for flying Virgin Atlantic."
