Th RAF have revealed they flying at low levels later this week in Powys.

The air force has released its low flying training schedule for next week and have confirmed there will be two session next week at a training area next to the Mach loop.

To the south of the Mach Loop there is an area called Tactical Training Area 7T, “in which, at specified times, the aircraft may fly as low as 100 feet (30.5 Metres)”.

The Ministry of Defence said: “Operational low flying is an essential skill and is practised by fixed wing aircraft between 100 feet and 250 feet; a more representative altitude at which pilots would fly in a combat scenario.”

“Late spring and summer are the busiest times for low flying as squadrons make full use of good weather to carry out their training.”

The whole area is a favourite for those wishing to see planes flying up close, frequently producing spectacular shots of jets in flight.

The loop is also used by non-UK forces such as the American air force and the Canadian air force as part of UK training operations.

The RAF have announced that there will be two operational low flying training session on July 3 from 9.15am to 10.15am and a second at 1.15pm to 2.15pm.

Don't be tempted to put your own craft up into the skies to improve your photos thought - The RAF has put up signs reminding the public that drones are banned on the Mach loop after two pilots had near misses that could have been “catastrophic”.
