“We can confirm that targets… are on board specific flights in near real time, enabling surveillance or arrest teams to be put in place in advance,” a GCHQ analyst wrote in a PowerPoint slide presentation on the program. “If they use data, we can also recover email address’s [sic], Facebook IDs, Skype addresses, etc.”
