Are you flying in Britain? If not, are you sure you're inserting the real zulu time in the GMT box in Time & Season and not the local time?

The wierd thing is that in the "TIME and SEASON" box if I insert for instance todays date 19 July 2005 and in the "LOCAL TIME" box 18:012(real local time in ITALY)...I get on the right box "GMT" 02:12...why???Shouldn't I get 16:12 GMT time????
