Warning of Flight Safety Checks for tonight and tomorrow over RAF Northolt – low level late night repeated passes over the runway….
I have just received notification that RAF Northolt will have one of its periodic checks of its flight safety radar systems and I wanted to distribute the information to you:
9 Feb 2300 to 0300hrs (Tonight).
10 Feb 2300 to 0300hrs (Tomorrow).
Only one aircraft will be operating from RAF Northolt throughout the flight check, making repeated approaches to the runway during these times.
The purpose of the check is to calibrate and assure essential flight safety equipment. As always, the calibration flights will be subject to acceptable weather conditions and may be rescheduled if the weather is not suitable. RAF Northolt apologises for any disruption caused to local residents and appreciates the continued support and understanding within the local community in support of the Station.
