It would appear that the so called professional RAF haven't heard of TEM otherwise why would you fly a training aircraft at the same height as a helicopter that on that day flew over 70 cycles between pick up point and drop off point with a 600kg load 70 ft underneath it ?
What are the instructors teaching the new generation of pilots ??????
I am afraid the RAF has now become in my humble eyes an organisation that pays lip service to safety and quite frankly is not fit for purpose.
Did you file an airprox in addition to complaining to the RAF?

Hughes, your post of last night says:

”...the 3 airports had been investigated by RAF police...”

I suspect autocorrect from “airproxs”?

One hopes that the airprox board's analysis is more independent and thorough than the RAFs!
