    London Airspace closed...

    Due to computer failure.

    (BBC breaking news).


    I think the word that comes to mind is "clusterf__k".


    How on earth the ATC network (assumption) is allowed to have a single point of failure is completely beyond me! If aircraft are required to have multiple redundancies in case of failure, why oh why is the supporting (critical) ground infrastructure not the same.

    It'll be interesting/scary to see how/if the massive number of diversions that are required can be handled by all divert airports (and by all fuel tanks in the planes required to divert).
