Anyone know the current situation with the Mach Loop? I’m sure I read somewhere that the review was due end January. I don’t do Facebook so can’t read the groups on there.

G'day Jason

Nothing to do with The Loop .... but I don't do Fb either, but need to be into several discussion groups. I created an entry with false details for everything except the name, and zero entries of "stuff & rubbish" after that. However it does give me the intro to contact other groups and gain entry with chat facilities within these other groups

Hope this helps
Phil

Just had a quick look at Fightercontrol forum, no pictures from Loop in the Low Level section since November, it's usually
pretty much all Loop pictures.

The Saudi Tornado came through Cad today. And it was very busy last week with the USAF. But no RAF for a while yet. If you want to do that area they I would suggest the A5 Pass, as that is getting quite a bit of traffic at moment. I will be popping up to the Lakes in March.

Do you have a post code or location for the A5 pass.

Along the A5 from Capel Curig to Bethesda, they fly through that valley, so just pick a spot and climb.

You mean the Ogwen Valley?

I go there every so often and have always seen aircraft on weekdays - Hawks and heavier stuff. I’ve often thought you could get some nice topsides from the slopes of Pen Yr Ole Wen. Not a nice climb though.

I hope the Mach Loop ‘returns’. I very nearly got shut of my DSLR this week, only the aircraft togging makes me keep it.

The Ogwen Valley sounds like a win though if it’s busier. Such a stunning place.

I have not been as yet. But will be heading just south of Thirlmere Reservoir and climbing either east or west Dunmail depending up on light.

It appears that a couple of the Mach Loop fb pages dont like to talk about the return of the RAF to the loop, I have had 3 posts deleted without any explanation until i contacted admin for a response ..... I think they could have given me a reason and not just deleted the posts .... not very courteous of them in my opinion.

This is one of the reasons I asked here. I’m not a member of Facebook but the Loop pages you could read without signing up - they’re now private. Odd.

Went past yesterday on my way for, a nearly very painful, walk up Cadar Idris. It was quite sad to see the Cad West car park totally empty at 0730 on a nice, sunny day. First time ever I think.

I think they have extended the no fly restriction for some weeks.

The USAF F15's tried to get under the cloud today, but could not find a hole. Fog forecasted for tomorrow. So I will go up on Thursday. RAF ban will be reviewed in May.
