Really? All quiet on the twitter front which is usually a good indicator of such trouble.

There is mention of system problems at FRA on the eurocontrol tactical update.

FRA has some ATC equipment issue today. My mid morning flight resulted being a lunch one as slots has to be reallocated. No mention of drones in the local FRA news (yet ?).
