I'm sure those on the foum who read the local news will be able to help you but at the mo I'm in the next resort in Arenal d'en Castell and have not seen any smoke or aerial activity by the planes which use the waters outside the Son Parc and Arenal bays for their training so I'm sure I would have seen them if they were about.

In the papers today
A large deployment of troops caused the fire that occurred early in the morning yesterday in the estate of Son Pons, near the road to Fornells and Cami d'en Kane. Fire fighters used only five vehicles and twelve professionals, which must be added to the police and the IBANAT, which moved even a helicopter. The fire, which did not give completely extinguished and controlled until noon, hit a couple of "tanks". The causes and the exact extent that was damaged by fire are being considered by environmental technicians.
