Fairly simple, just something like "F15 down low".

 

They've given the area that nickname so it must be pretty well known.

Very well known - the RAF train a lot in Wales because the North is only sparsely occupied and they can easily get out over the Irish Sea if they want to cut loose :)

 

I did most of my early high-speed jet training here:

Which is actually on the Island of Anglesey off the coast of North Wales - chilly place but hot flying :)

 

The Americans come over to the Welsh training areas quite a bit, mostly from the European bases because the options for low flying practice are somewhat limited on the mainland - used to able to do so in Spain but they apparently don't like it any more.

 Quite a lot of people it seems. :)

 

As a family we once lived in a place in Surrey that was right under the approach path to the Weybridge test field and we had BAC-111s and VC-10s coming low over the house most days. It never bothered me, but my mother was certainly not amused :)

Fitting comment in that story -

 


We are a service economy now, apparently we are all going to make a fortune selling coffee and smashed avocado to each other.

Great aircraft - never flown one, I'm, or was, a fighter guy, but mates who fly them tell me it behaves like a fighter anyway :)

 

I have seen them a few places, might have to see if I can scam a ride next time they deploy a couple to Pearce :)

 

Never had much to do with bombers really apart from escorting them, had a ride in a Vulcan once, scary damned thing, but I suppose what I used to fly was in that ballpark as well. :)

 

I'm never going to forget being in the weeds in the jump-seat of that beast. The pilots were remarkably unconcerned but really it was an aircraft designed for high altitude but was forced down low whereas what I flew was perfectly happy down low - well, not the Lightning, but the Harrier and the Phantom, sure, fine, happy in the weeds, or maybe that is just me :)

 

Cheers
