Mark asks:

Have planes been rerouted over Greenwich? I can’t recall so much traffic and noise.

The Phantom replies:

I don’t know about any rerouting of aeroplanes, but a friend of mine who flys helicopters tells me that this area is where they are held in a holding pattern before they’re allowed to fly over Central London, which is why we get so many helicopters, chinooks etc.

There could be a little more traffic due to that crash in Heathrow a week or so ago. One of the bays is, I believe, out of action, which means more circling for waiting aircraft.
