    The biggest culprit for setting off fire alarms in public buildings is the use of aerosol sprays in the toilets. My old office building was regularly evacuated (over 2000 people) and almost always it was due to people using aerosols in the vicinity of smoke detectors. Other than that, it was often contractors who triggered the alarm whilst carrying out work in the building - although I assumed the contractors had left the building at LBA now?

    We have had an A300, A330, DC10, B747/2 and B747/3 over the years, not to mention Concorde, so size is not a problem. Funnily enough I popped round to Cemetery Road yesterday afternoon. The roads and dam car park were totally rammed with cars and there were hundreds of people hanging around as if something interesting was due. One lad turned up and said 'so when is Concorde landing then?' Oh yes, those were the days.

    And to be fair a certain proportion of those craning their necks in anticipation, wouldn't have known the difference between Concorde and a C17 anyway

    The amount of traffic was remarkable. I don't remember Concorde attracting such crowds, especially in the later years. Anyone would have thought it was the Second Coming.

    You wouldn't say that if you had seen it depart. It was airborne before the runway downslope, so well before the touch down point on runway 32. It then levelled off and did a full length flypast down the runway before putting on full power to climb away once it cleared the runway. Really spectacular. All this followed taxiing all the way up to the cemetary end with one of the crew waving at the crowds through the roof hatch and then all the way back to the Horsforth end via the main taxiway and a lengthy wait for 3 or 4 inbound aircraft to land.

    The have been reports on other social media outlets of people yesterday being disrespectful by going into the cemetery. In my mind its totally disgraceful and you cannot condone it!

    Yes white heather, the C17 departure was epic. I was stood by myself at the 32 threshold, bliss!

    The behaviour of some people is disgusting. There will probably be a backlash from these events and it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Council took some action that will spoil things for all airport enthusiasts.

    Unfortunately society if full of idiots who spoil things for everyone else. Walking on the graves is nothing compared to what goes on around there after dark!

    Just about every town has it's mandatory poo tree, where dog owners fling their dog poo bags onto trees. People just throw litter anywhere rather than taking it home and putting it in the bin.

    On this occasion, I'm sure the main offenders were passer by opportunists rather than regular aircraft spotters and enthusiasts. Perhaps this also highlights the need for a more dedicated area for spotters.

    It has been happening for years but more of them last weekend. I have stopped going to the end of runway 14 for that reason.
