UK concerns over El Al anti-missile system
8 March 2006

U.K. trade union officials are pressing aviation authorities to reveal the exact potential safety issues that El Al`s “dark flare” anti-missile technology poses to its 30,000 members working at London-Heathrow (LHR). The Elta Flight Guard missile defence system has been installed on one Boeing 767 at the moment. The biggest fear is an accidental deployment on the ground or during the approach where it could endanger other aircraft. (Flight International)
