The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), has launched an investigation into an infringement of the Restricted Area (Temporary) airspace at RAF Cosford (Shropshire) on 9 June 2018. This incident resulted in an airprox with an aircraft conducting a flying display rehearsal.  

Due to the severity of this incident the pilot's licence has been provisionally suspended.

The CAA takes all airspace infringements seriously to ensure the safety of aircraft and the public.

Rob Gratton, Principal Airspace Regulator at the UK Civil Aviation Authority, said: “We constantly remind pilots of the importance of being fully briefed on NOTAM and supporting Aeronautical Information Circulars which can be found on the NATS Aeronautical Information Services website.”
