LIN Closed Due To Hares

Wed Jun 13, 2007 5:28 pm

Apparently, LIN will be closed for three hours next sunday (morning) because of
hare disinfestation  Smile

In the article, they say there are at least 80 hares inside LIN perimeter. They
are clearly a danger for aircrafts (in particular small ones). Moreover, they say
this is a common problem in airports but, honestly, I have never heard anything
like that...

Well yeah, we have several hares running around here, but not even CLOSE to 80.
The birds are a much bigger problem.

I don't think we have any hares at LHR. I have seen plenty of foxes on stands and taxiways, though. Not to mention the rats, of course...

Bunnies really  Cool I remember a session in the DC8 simulator (yes, many many years ago!) and this instructor suddenly starts screaming, on approach to AMS: rabbits, rabbits! We all cracked up of course Big grin
I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!
