GIBRALTAR’S rescue services are currently undergoing an air disaster exercise at the enclave’s airport.
Over 100 soldiers and drama students have been drafted in to act as injured passengers in an airline accident.
Members of the public were warned to hear sirens and see fire engines, ambulances and police vehicles racing between the airport and St Bernard’s Hospital.
However several eyewitness clearly missed the memo and took to social media to air their confusion.
Alex Carvana said: “What’s with all the traffic? Are we under attack.”
Several mentions of UFOs landing on the Rock and terrorist attacks at the airport have also done the rounds.
The exercise started at 3pm and is due to be completed this afternoon.
