Have a read here http://machloop.co.uk/ and google around I believe there are some rough timetables published but they are not very reliable and obviously very weather dependant

Fantastic 1st visit to the Loop. up at 6am with the Mrs and headed out. 1st flyby was around 10.30am... pair of Hawkes came through about 4 times then nothing. must get to grips with new camera as photos were ok but could be better. Very Happy

It depends on what area you go to as well. Some traffic does not go round the loop & some join at other points & miss the part you are at ! As a regular visitor, the busiest part is the top of the A470 pass ( The Bwlch) but the car park is very small. There are other locations here but they involve very steep climbs which do need really good footwear , weather gear , food for the day etc. Some landowners are hostile towards photographers too !!! The aircraft are on you within about 6 seconds as well! There have been some NOTAMS in the area recently too due to helicopter operations ( civil). Generally Fridays are the poorest day but a few weeks back the USAF turned up with 4 x F-15's that really put on a show. I've been going to the Ogwen valley of late as it is closer & some very good pics can be had here too , more Hawks than anything else though. It is a bit like fishing for planes ... just dangle a camera & wait for a bite. A word of warning though ... be careful if you put any pics. on the web ... it can get people into trouble if the wrong sort of picture gets posted !!!
