HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 c64W
16. Mr. H. Wilson

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the disturbance caused to residents in Huyton-with-Roby from low-flying heavy United States aircraft late at night and in the early morning, including four-engined jet machines; and whether he will take steps to reduce this disturbance, particularly during the night hours.

Mr. Ward

The United States Air Force authorities have undertaken to do their utmost to reduce night traffic at Burtonwood. Two recent instances of landings by forces of heavy jet aircraft late at night and in the early morning were emergency diversions caused by bad weather.
