Compensation for low-flying jets?

December 3rd, 1995

Observer, 3 December 1995, p9
The European Union is drawing up strict compensation rules, which will lead to the Ministry of Defence paying millions of pounds for low-flying RAF jets.

The European Commission cannot propose legislation or fines for military jets. Concern about noise pollution has prompted the European Commission to draft a number of proposals to decrease noise pollution, however, this does not relate to or affect military aircraft as Member States act independently on such matters.
