A plot to blow up planes from UK to U had been disrupted. London's airports have been put under the restrictions.

Thursday the 10th of August 2006. I've planned to fly to France for a friend's birthday and then another one's wedding. After lots of problems to get to the airport: delays at the tube stations, missed the coach to the airport, get on the taxi to Liverpool Street to take the train, I've arrived at the airport 30 minutes before the departure time! The taxi driver told us that there were some problem at Heathrow and Gatwick airport.

Arrived at Stansted airport to get on the RyanAir FR632 Flight, theinformations displays show that the flight had been cancelled. Theairport was crowed and there were a lot of police men. Ryan air'sinformation point was saturated, the waiting queue was hundred mileslong! We've been told to go home and connect to the Ryan air's websiteto rebook for free or cancel for total refund.

What happened? The day before, a terror plot hadbeen disrupted at Heathrow airport. The terrorists were willing to blowup planes flying from UK to US using liquid explosives that they wouldbuild on board.  UK's airports are in high alert state. From since,hundreds off lights have been cancelled, and on authorized flights,people were not allowed to take any liquid or any container/boxes onboard.

Here are some photographs taken at Stansted airport.
