General Notices


Notifications received from RAF Brize Norton


I have been asked to let you know that there will be an increase in noise levels around the RAF Brize Norton area this week.


A widely publicised NATO Summit will be held in South Wales on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th September 2014. As a part of this summit a large number of NATO fast jet (fighter aircraft) will be conducting a flypast across South Wales on Friday morning. A practise flypast is scheduled for Wednesday morning.


For logistical reasons these aircraft will be based at RAF Brize Norton. The aircraft will be arriving today and tomorrow and the majority will be departing on Friday and Saturday. RAF Brize Norton Air Traffic Control will be proactive in minimising the disturbance to the local population during the duration of this visit.


Further information about the NATO Summit can be found at:
