Further RAF Coningsby overnight flights scheduled

Night flying plans for RAF Coningsby will mean possible noise disruption for residents until July 16.

Due to ongoing works on the runway at RAF Waddington, part of the aircraft and personnel from the base have been temporarily relocated to RAF Coningsby.
