No changes to Line of Attack headings, no noise complaints.

If AS are using the Range with no ordnance on board, they are able to choose headings that suit them due to training, weather etc.

Usual headings apply if armed/live firing.

And for your own safety, definately DO NOT go down the sea bank, across the mudflats or stray onto the Range please!! The Range is well signposted for various hazards, please obey them all. :'(

HTH.

Coming back to this hobby and seeing this makes me aware of the reduction in the number of machines available.... In the eighties Holbeach was a good day out.
But the 'peace dividend ' is not to be sniffed at.
