Hello,

Since we now finally have access to a military jet - Indiafoxtecho's cool Aermacchi MB 339 - my first instinct was to buzz the ATC tower at my home town airport "Maverick-style", and then fly the Mach Loop (also called the Machynlleth Loop) in Wales. Officially this is the Low Flying Area 7 (LFA7), a military low flying training area for fighter and transport pilots.

It is located in an unrestricted and populated area in Snowdonia. If you ever get there, you may get lucky and sit on one of the mountains surrounding the valleys watching RAF Typhoons, Tornados, C130s, USAF F15s or Ospreys fly past below you. Or you just get buzzed by them driving in your car :-)

These two flight plans recreate the Mach Loop with waypoints from EGOV (RAF Valley) to either the South or the North entrance. My recommendation is the latter since this way you can fly the whole loop. Optimal speed IMHO is between 300 and 350kt.

thanks for adding the flight plan, will drop a rating once i had a chance to try it out!

Edit: Works and loads just fine, thanks again!

How do you install it for steam edition of fs2020? I tried moving it into the community folder and it came up with: The System cannot find the path specified

This flight plan is sheer fun.

Thank you very much for your help to find this out.
good work Thanks my friend
This great - Thanks ! Hopefully we'll get a scenery for RAF Valley soon !
Most fun flight-plan I have in MSFS right now. Keep flying this in an RAF-skinned A320, feels so badass. Looking forward to seeing other players in the Loop!
Great work! Please consider moving this creation to the correct category (Flight Plans). Best regards.
Thanks! This was really fun to fly with the Aermacchi MB-339
