Primarily for general aviation discussion, but other aviation topics are also welcome.

Ah, the old rock and a hard place. :wink:

You suggesting it should be done by a formation flight? :lol:

A person gets murdered and a member of the public tells the police the name of the person they saw leaving the premises. The person is subsequently convicted of murder.

Do you really detest that member of the public?

I did......

I guess the difference in this case is that no laws were broken.

On the FB groups they seem certain that Blackebush reported or MOR’d the flight to the CAA.

Is there evidence to support the assertions that it was BB that reported the flight and would it fit the MOR categories.

With Blackbushe having their approval to de register the common land they are situated on kicked out by a judicial review, judgement last week, they could have done without this incident.
Whether to report or not - they cannot win either way and the publicity is unwelcome.

The context is important.

I was told by the airfield manager that flying activity during the “lockdown” would inflame the situation with locals.

Living in one of the localish villages, I think I'd agree with their perception of the sentiment.
I think since the Church Fenton MATZ and associated procedures went, there's a cohort of pilots that don't pay much attention to what they're flying over - causing grief for the rest of us.
Minority of pilots + minority of residents = lot of heat.

Iv seen another facebook post today where someone has done a NHS to the east of yorkshire and they are getting lots of praise in the local paper even though its actually bit of a scruffy FR writing compared to some. Nice big sharp letters and set transpoder to Inop between letters gives a neater finish
