#3 Is it just me, or is anyone else getting the feeling the Brits actually want to shoot down or blow up in mid-air the event-winning BallShots from opposing foreign teams???

AND IS US SPACE/ORBITAL STRIKE INVOLVED???

#5 HOw many airfields in England? Certainly there can put a security guy at each monitoring things and if someone tries to fly in from out of the country the RAF should take them out. I'm not sure I get this missile thing.

#6 > HOw many airfields in England?

More than you'd think. However the entire London (M25+)area is off limits for non commercial pilots.

#7 Actually, I thought these missiles could work in bad weather, there are thermal sights available for the guidance units.
