Hi chaps,

Just as a matter of personal interest, what height do you normally overfly DLO at?

Bests,
Giz

DLO

Archaic term meaning Defence Logistics Organisation (mission; to Deliver Logistics for Operations), some offices in the Andover area, merged with DPA to form DES.

You did ask.

There's more than one DLO site, though. I've been working at a top-secret Oxfordshire DLO site this last few months...

DLO Andover is not a MW gate. To avoid Andover, local villages and the Thruxton ATZ it is a route often used day and night. The minimum height to overfly that area would depend on authorisation, weather, sunbathers etc.
