We at Coedmor Cottages are fortunate enough to be on the test route for The RAF so regularly have the privilege of seeing the Hawk T2 and the Hercules C130J buzzing past our window or over our rooftop… its just the most amazing sight and sound, so if you are a plane fanatic why not book with us and have your camera at the ready as they don’t hang about… on a good day you can even see the smile on the pilot’s face… lets face it wouldn’t you be smiling too!!
RAF Valley on Anglesey is home to No 4 Flying Training School, responsible for training the UK’s next generation of world-class fighter pilots and is also home to the Mountain Rescue Service, the military’s only high readiness, all weather search and rescue, aircraft post-crash management asset.
Aircrew are also trained at RAF Valley for mountain and maritime operations throughout the world.
Probably their most famous pilot was Prince William who has reportedly said that he misses his old job as a helicopter pilot at RAF Valley in North Wales.
