Definitely On The Bucket List.

Oh, the Mach Loop. A magical place where you can spot some of your favorite aircraft unlike anywhere else in the world. The reason for that is that if you go at the right time, you can see both the Royal Air Force and the United States Air Force practicing.

Then there’s the added benefit of the fact that they’re practicing low proximity flight and the place they do it is inside of a ravine. Yup, you can catch your favorite planes hugging corners next to rocky cliffs. If you want to know more about the Mach Loop, just click here after you’re done watching this video.

How sweet is that?

In the past, we’ve shown you a bunch of videos from this place. From England’s Tornados, Typhoons and Hawks to U.S.’ F-15s and F-22s. We even got a video of the C-130 Hercules. Never however, have we seen the behemoth that is the C-17 Globemaster III.

174 feet long and with a wingspan of almost 170 feet, seeing this big of a plane in the Mach Loop is quite a treat. Also, the sound is incredible. Bouncing off ravine walls, those Pratt & Whitney F-117-PW-100s are unmistakable.
