Thanks for correcting me on IDENTIFIED (I forgot it was a SKYDIVER fueling schedule and not the SHADAIR flight). But re: the SHADIR jet in the AQOP episode it is never mentioned again after Straker orders it back into the air after the mobiles are off-loaded (so we don't know if it landed at the SHADO airbase, or if the courier collected the anti-biotics etc). But as I was saying the episode is full of plot-holes etc, one of them being Security chief Freeman not checking with Straker first before ordering it to be diverted to Ireland (which is a definite plot-hole as he was present in an earlier scene when Straker is anxiously asking Matthew Ford for an update on the obviously re-scheduled flight) so he knows there is something about this re-scheduled SHADAIR flight that is obviously troubling Straker but because the script demands him to act 'out-of-character' so he does not etc.
Well obviously the real-life incident of the studio boss saving the employees child that this episode was based on obviously didn't have aliens spending quality time in Galway - lol (or DID it? :)
