Army Helicopter Exercise

 

10 Army helicopters will be conducting a small-scale Military exercise over parts of Pembrokeshire during the period 4-9th September.
The exercise, codenamed. Exercise Cobra Strike will involve up to 10 helicopters around the Manorbier and surrounding area.
” There will be occasions when participating aircraft will be required to operate at low and ground level. Any time spent conducting low and ground level activity will be the minimum necessary to achieve the training objectives and every effort will be made to minimise disturbance”, said Sqdn Ldr Albie Fox, the RAF’s community relations officer for Wales.

Low Flying Ex in September

 

Low flying jet exercises over mid Wales in September

Military aircraft will be flying low over parts of mid Wales during September, it has been announced.

The Wales Tactical Training Area (TTA) will be used by the RAF, Army and Royal Navy for low level training flights as low as 100ft (30.5m) at specific times.

The TTA ranges from Machynlleth in the north, west to Lampeter, south of Llandovery, to Newtown in the east.

Squadron leader Albie Fox said: “This area is vital to the training of our pilots.”

He added: “We are usually only allowed to fly down to 250ft (76.2m) MSD (minimum safe distance) but our aircrews are often required to fly much lower than this on operations.

“We do realise that it would not be viable to operate down to 100ft (30.5m) all day every day so the TTA is usually only active for one hour per day from Monday to Friday”.

Although the timetable has been set out in advance and publicised, Mr Fox said aircraft may not be flying low for the full hour.

“Fast jets can travel up to 517mph and therefore would cover the length of the TTA very quickly,” he added.

“There may then not be any further requirement to return to the area once exited.”

Other aircraft can still fly during the hours specified but no lower than 500ft (152.4m) MSD.

This timetable can be seen on the RAF’s community relations in Wales website, Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Activity times will also be posted on Twitter daily.

In July 2010 Elfyn Llwyd, the Plaid Cymru MP for Dwyfor Meirionnydd, called on the Ministry of Defence to stop low flying training over rural Wales, claiming the practice was damaging the hearing of local residents.

Helimed airlift for holidaymaker

 

The ever seen presence of the Wales Air Ambulance was seen once again in the county last week, as it tasked to Saundersfoot.

A holidaymaker was airlifted to hospital on Friday after being taken ill in Saundersfoot.
A rapid response paramedic requested the assistance of the Wales Air Ambulance and Tenby coastguard to deal with a 66-year-old man suffering a cardiac arrest at a local hotel where the casualty was holidaying.
A land ambulance from Pembroke Dock conveyed the man to Saundersfoot beach slipway where the coastguard had provided a landing site for Helimed 57A and stretchered the casualty to the helicopter.
He was then flown to Morriston Hospital, Swansea for specialist treatment.
