Windfarm flights fear  

A Scottish airport want to block plans for a windfarm -because the turbines will look like planes on their radar.

National Air Traffic Services say the 400ft structures’ blades and towers would cause chaos, as they reflect radar signals and make them look like moving planes.

And officials at Prestwick Airport agree that engineering firm AMEC’s 85-turbine site in Dalmellington, Ayrshire, could cause havoc in the air.

A public inquiry into the planned site was due to be heard this month.

But the air traffic company have asked for more time to present their objections and the inquiry has been rescheduled for February 20.
