If you want to see some really close, and very clever flying take a trip to the viewing areas looking at the "Machynlleth Loop" in Wales.

Some remarkable flying to be seen,,,,,,,,,,,and it is very noisy !!!!

You know we could hear them on Wednesday but couldn’t see them, by the time we were reaching the top of Snowdon the clouds were covering the peaks. They had Very loud jet engines.
That link is handy too Damian
I’ve seen a few at see when I served in the RN but very intrigued to see them performing training in these conditions

My nieces husband was a navigator/winch man on the Air Sea Rescue Wetlands (holder of no less than two Blue Peter badges) when they were based there. They liked to tease those at the top of Snowden as they took a very easy way up.

Later, the wife’s cousin’s son did his fast jet training there. Tradition says that each group who go through make a video of their training. I have a copy, fantastic low level stuff in the Hawlks.

A goodly number of Welsh emigrated to Patagonia. And the language is still spoken in the area that they settled.
I remember seeing that on a couple of documentaries now, and they said it reminded them of home. So I made a good guess!
