Patriot ad

On hearing about more UK airport closures, I thought I’d go onto the flightradar24 site that I previously mentioned, and have a look at where the planes aren’t (actually for some reason this particular map shows no planes at all, but lets not worry about those details).

The point is the Google ad in the top right corner.

I’m not sure what is more intriguing about this ad… that it is  being context targeted onto a site that shows where all the world’s planes are or that someone is actually advertising patriot missile systems on Google!

Either way, fascinating!

Oh, and if you click on the ad, it takes you here.
