Steve Posted February 2, 2012 Share Posted February 2, 2012 My usual spot for launching is right under the RAF's favourite low flying training route over the Brecon Beacons. If you like aircraft you get some spectacular views when they are doing their stuff (I especially love Chinooks coming over low on a turn). It changes from awe to concern when launching mid-week though, but more than once I have noticed that bang on time of the notification given to RAF Wittering the RAF traffic has given me a wide berth. I could hear gunshot and explosions a couple of months ago when Sennybridge was having a mock battle and the helicopters and fast jets all noticeably avoided my grid reference. Having spoken with other pilots when flying elsewhere it seems that not many make the call to the Low Flying Booking Cell, even though their area is potentially used for low flying training. I found this pdf which has some useful info in it and a couple of really good pics: http://www.mod.uk/nr/rdonlyres/8fbe2382 ... ng2011.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
