This summer thousands of holiday-makers are spending their first day in the Costa del Gatwick, as foreign air traffic controllers struggle to find space for them. Here, a new flight is crammed into the airspace every ten seconds. "Horizon" gained unprecedented access to investigate how air traffic control really works. One dimly lit operations room handles everything that flies over England and Wales. Yet controllers say equipment is out of date and keeps breaking down. Plans for the new London City Airport went wrong a few weeks after opening day. Why? How much longer can controllers struggle with the tidal wave of aircraft?
