    Default Raf:

    RAF Valley in Anglesey opened on 13th February 1941, with the task of providing defence cover for England's industrial north-west and shipping in the Irish Sea.

    Royal Air Force Station Valley provides fast-jet training for jet planes and aircrew working with search and rescue. It is also used as Anglesey Airport.

    Often had the crap scared out of me when driving across the A66 on our way over to the Lakes, when one of them have gone screaming over us when they were carrying out low flying exercises. Probably the last truly designed and built great British fighter jet.
