It's all a knee jerk reaction IMO to a 'near miss' back in December, during the Airprox review it was decided by DCom Ops to halt all Low Level flying until the GR4 OSD on safety grounds, nothing to do with fatigue of the Jet or no longer a need to train Low Level.

Re: Machloop ban

Typhoon FGR4 is Multi-Role,the GR4 is over once its Shader Op is canx.Aging air frames are at risk at any level i guess.One thing ive learned about the M.O.D over a big chunk of my lifetime is they do not discuss Op matters in public.P.R. on social media sure.

Re: Low Flying Military Aircraft and Paragliding

Most of the time they will issue a NOTAM and pretty sure last week there was 3 separate NOTAMS for Hang Gliding in the Lakes and like the one Blackcat refers to in the Loop they did issue a NOTAM as well and it's Class G Airspace so both work on a 'See and Avoid' basis. Spot on Rob,it is a way of l...
