HC Deb 05 May 2000 vol 349 c221W
Mr. Quentin Davies

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the lowest operational attitude at which the C130J aircraft is cleared to fly in the RAF. [120410]

Mr. Spellar

[holding answer 3 May 2000]While the C 130J is being introduced into service and development of its full tactical capability continues, the lowest operational altitude for which it is cleared is 2000 ft, except for take-off, visual circuits, instrument approaches and landings. Clearance for low level operation will follow when trials work is complete.
