RAF Typhoon Flies The Mach Loop – 250ft Low Level Flying

A couple of videos…

Firstly, strap in for an early afternoon low level flight over England and Wales, over the shoulder of an RAF Typhoon pilot as he talks through flying the Mach Loop. Sent in by Roddy Macgregor from the UK, thanks Roddy!

(From Wikipedia:) The  Mach Loop (also known as the Machynlleth Loop), consists of a series of valleys in the United Kingdom in west-central Wales, notable for their use as low-level training areas for fast jet aircraft. The system of valleys lies 8 miles east of Barmouth and is nestled between the towns of Dolgellau to the north and Machynlleth to the south, from the latter of which it takes its name. The training area is within the Low Flying Area (LFA) LFA7, which covers most of Wales.

One you’re done with that, check out the various aircraft on the circuit from the perspective of these dedicated plane-spotting hikers.


Volume up for both.
