Considering the differences in manoeuvrability There was a helicopter as well, it didn't show up on FlightRadar24, but did show on the other site that Doc linked to. That was presumably what was used for the 'aerial shots' of the race, as it was closely following the marathon route on the map. But still, isn't all this 'glorious' 5G technology we now have meant to remove such a need for airborne relay systems? Just to add, I'm not suggesting that this particular plane was deliberately "spraying" something, and it did head back to East Midlands airport presumably when the marathon outside broadcast had finished. But I do think that plane exhaust fumes are having a negative effect on the atmosphere and that they do affect weather patterns. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
