Britain has imposed a restriction on the airspace over London ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games which start in a fortnight with a warning that planes that stray into the zone could ultimately be shot down. Under the Olympic air security plan, 48km of airspace surrounding the Olympic park will become a no-fly zone and general aviation will not be allowed in but passenger planes heading for Heathrow or London City airports will not be affected.
