Runway 25 is closed due to a security alert on the 25 approach so  All arriving aircraft are using 17 but plane departing can take off on 25.

I wondered why it was so quiet.

No info as to why 25 is closed for landings on the Aldergrove automated info.Could be a problem with the approach lights maybe?

It does mention that UHF comms will not work until further notice,due to testing of electronic counter messures. (ECM)

Just listened to it now on 128.5.

I wonder what that is about?
