This is the thing though, I'm in the UK and the nearest military base is a couple of hundred miles away, never seen military presence at the airport and haven't seen it anywhere near me at all before which is why this struck me as odd.
I could've understood if it happened near the times that David Cameron and Pope Benedict flew from our airport because of the heightened security involved with those people but this happened months after so it can't be related to security measures. If it were a drill wouldn't it take place near a military base? And there were no security threats at the airport to explain it as that either.
