RAF Chiefs fear Pilot’s lives are put at risk by proliferation of wind farms.

RAF chiefs fear pilots’ lives are being put at risk by the number of windfarms being built in the Moray area.

SH*T. Were they on the map? Never saw them!

SH*T. Were they on the map? Never saw them!

Papers lodged with the Scottish Government show military top brass are worried that turbines are jeopardising the safety of fast jets returning to the key Lossiemouth base at speeds of up to 500mph.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is fighting to block plans for four huge new wind turbines south of the base, and officials say existing windfarms in the area are already causing a “significant operational issue”.

One also may reflect that the Top Brass at the MOD have little faith in the new much praised but totally untried new radar systems promoted by such as the DECC and Scottish Renewables. It should be noted that most Radar systems spend years in trials before being considered whereas the DECC and SG has welcomed this unproven technology in a few short months.
