HC Deb 03 December 1952 vol 508 c155W
90. Mr. Wood

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what steps he is taking to prevent unnecessary low flying over built-up areas.

Mr. Ward

I can assure my hon. Friend that low flying over built-up areas is strictly forbidden except where it is necessary to enable pilots to carry out essential operational training or to use airfields near such areas. Unauthorised low flying is regarded as a very serious offence indeed, which may result in dismissal from the Service.
