A brief statement issued by the airport said it “had to temporarily suspend services due to an air traffic control fault,” without giving any further details. Passengers have been advised to check schedules while the airport is working “to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”

The incident follows a string of alleged drone sightings at London’s Gatwick Airport, which were enough to shut it down for over 30 hours this week. Thousands of passengers became stranded or had to rebook their flights.

Neither the drone nor its pilot have been found by the police so far. Moreover, the latest police comment cited by media said there may not have been any pesky UAV at Gatwick at all.

It is no surprise that the new air traffic disruption at Birmingham in wake of the Gatwick mayhem has evoked a horde of conspiracy theorists and jokers alike trying to ‘explain’ the coincidence.

Some questioned the official explanations given for the traffic collapse – because, of course, the government is hiding “the truth.”

A few blamed the aliens in a solid old-school move.

But others chose to stay more in vein with the recent trends and laid blame on “the Russians” instead.

Of course, things got political pretty soon, with some witty commenters suggesting that the whole air traffic mess had something to do with Brexit.

Thakfully there was a lone Christmas conspiracy theory too, but it blamed the striking Santa Claus’s reindeer in a telling sign of our times.
