  1. Aviation privacy is a big issue. An aunt of mine lives near Gatwick airport and fights against any expansion of their flights.

    She’s got an app which allows her to monitor flights coming into Gatwick, mainly because the airport authorities sneak through lots of flights earlier and later than they should.

    Surely, this app should be banned? In the wrong hands it could be lethal.

  2. The opening of the Madrid Edition could be good timing. I’ve been pining for a trip to Madrid. It’s been several years since I last visited.

  3. Sometimes the order of stories tell what’s going on. You’ve got a report on plans to throw eggs at Jeff Bezos’ yacht followed by another story about a 77% growth of sales in super yachts. D’you think those locals are going to be throwing a lot more eggs in future?
