HC Deb 10 October 1945 vol 414 c209
25. Mr. Ayles

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what complaints he has received regarding the low flying of aircraft from the Heston Airport over Heston and Southall and its effects on the health of the women and children in those districts; whether he is aware that this is not only true of the exhibition flights carried out, on 2nd October, but is characteristic of most days of the week; and if he will give instructions for such low flying over built-up areas to cease.

Mr. Strachey

A complaint has been received in the Air Ministry concerning low flying near Heston Airport on 2nd October, and this is being investigated. There have been no other recent complaints. My hon. Friend will realise that some disturbance is unavoidable when aircraft are landing and taking off from airfields near built-up areas.
