Clearly Erdogan thinks very highly of himself. What’s the second Turkish jet hiding behind the VC-25?

I've been through all the SBS logs, due lists, members' posts and also the daily Stansted movements blog link all posted on the STNAE Google group (of which I'm co-owner) for 20th and there are no helicopter movements reported anywhere so I have to doubt they were going to Stansted as something of t...

At least two people on ladders right against the hedge yet those standing unaided by ladders having their views obscured by the elevated people at the front , that's being REALLY resolute in their perseverance.
