Holding over Chippenham

Post by NToombes » 22 Jun 2013, 09:57


Just seen on FR24 this morning that most Ockham inbounds from over Wales are doing a loop just over Chippenham, north of Bristol.
Not sure on the ATC frequency at this point so I could maybe hear a reason why but they just seem to do one loop.
I guess just stalling arrivals into the Ockham hold.
