I heard tell hat the building in question was entered both into the simulator and used during flights as a recognisable feature way point -

The MOD says the planes are strictly controlled, but sometimes break the sound barrier when national security could be at risk.
My bold. And for that very reason alone, MOD should show two fingers to the compo-chasers.
