This chapter discusses events that occurred between May and December 1989. These include the British Government's cancellation of military manoeuvres scheduled to take place off Gibraltar on 13 May, in case the Spanish Government interpreted them as a provocation; the re–emergence of comparisons between Gibraltar and Hong Kong; and Gibraltar's appeal to the European Court of Justice to nullify the agreement signed between Spain and Britain in December 1987, which excluded Gibraltar's airport from the directive until there was a terminal available to Spain.
