Something to do with one of the 'spy' Islanders from Northolt. They can fly pretty much where they like in the interest of national security.

Forces TV reported a Sentinel was at Northolt and the RAF asked permission for Heathrow airspace to be closed so it carry out an urgent mission.What a load of tosh.It was definitely an Islander.lol
