Royal Navy warship almost fires on UFOs

Airport vs "real" radars

My understanding is that (civilian) airport radars are really only powerful enough to trigger transponders in aircraft, and cannot "skin paint" or get reflections from aircraft with their transponders turned off, which would explain the variance between the airport's and HMS Daring's radar logs.

You first

I'd be considerably less wary of this if the Feds were even vaguely competent in maintaining the security of their own network infrastructure. Tell you what, how about you apply this law only to fed.gov first and if you get your own house in order then we'll see about letting you start telling the private companies what to do?
