I would probably hang around and wait if asked too, but it does raise an interesting few questions:
1. Who is to stop you leaving the aerodrome and by what means?
2. What is a reasonable time to wait for BF to turn up having told them of your ETA on the GAR?
3. What happens if you decide to leave and then they pitch up later looking for you?
I would say probably:
1. The local constabulary or BF officer could detain you.*
2. At the very least until your stated ETA.
3. They can find you at the address stated on the form if they feel the need.
*I wonder how any possible private security personnel present would see their role though?
Its generally best to make a hole in the sky.......not the ground...
