Re: Going on at Gatwick Airport

Just to confirm for the OP that these are vehicles (airfield ops in this case) You might also see Fire and Works call signs sometimes. They are transponder equipped so they show up on the ground movement radar, a real boon at night or in fog but also very useful most of the time...
