    Speculation rife via Twitter as Flight DL99 spotted circling via Flightradar website.
    Twitter users who have been monitoring the Flightradar website have speculated that a major terrorist incident may be underway, with some claiming that the transatlantic flight is under escort from French fighter jets.

    When the Delta flight arrived at Schiphol, it seems to have been followed from the runway by 'A1' 'P3' Ambu 1 etc.
    I noticed Delta are saying it will depart for Detroit in one hour!
    Yeah, right!
    The ground vehicles do use Mode-S Transponders, its so ATC can monitor their position so there is no conflicts with Aircraft.

    You see these ground vehicles at other Airports too.

    Flight DL99/DAL99

    Does anyone know what happens with flight DL99/DAL99? It came from Paris with destination Detroit, but keeps circling just north of Cambridge.
