§ 27. Commander Kerans
asked the Secretary of State for Air what night flying by jet aircraft has taken place in the Seaton Carew area of West Hartlepool in recent weeks.
§ Mr. W. J. Taylor
Fighter aircraft from R.A.F, Middleton-St.-George have carried out night flying as part of their normal training programme. Aircraft approaching to land under ground control necessarily pass close to Seaton Carew.
§ Commander Kerans
Can my hon. Friend say at what height these aircraft cross the coast and what instructions are given to pilots to avoid residential and built-up areas?
§ Mr. Taylor
Aircraft landing under ground control approach conditions pass close to Seaton Carew at heights varying between 2,500 and 7,500 feet dependent upon conditions.
