I live in a nice quiet part of Scotland. Quiet except for flaming low-flying driver airframes. Contact with their base gets answer that constant training is necessary. Can those with recent front-line experience confirm this please? From what I recall of Gulf Wars 1 & 2, the destruction of enemy air defence was done from long range/high altitude and any low level flying that might have taken place was superflous. I'm talking about high speed aircraft not heli etc. Also seem to recall that in GW1, low flying was banned by Yanks as counter-productive.
