1987 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Date 1 January 1987 - 31 December 1987

Event ID 545615

Category Project

Type Project


As a result of problems relating to the Civil Aviation Authority's interpretation of 'aerial work', no flying took place during the winter and spring. Although negotiations with the C.A.A. were ultimately brought to a satisfactory conclusion, weather conditions then deteriorated and remained adverse to cropmark reconnaissance throughout the summer flying season. The extreme volatility of the weather also made it difficult to operate over upland targets, with the result that only 13 sorties were flown, with targets located amounting to little more than 10% of the annual average for summer flying.
