Salisbury Plain Training area (SPTA) is a military training area located in the Wiltshire countryside, and is the largest military training area in the United Kingdom covering an area of 25x10 miles. It supports the training requirements of all three branches of the UK's armed forces the Army, Royal Air Force and also the Royal Navy with the various roles that each are tasked perform. Some of these roles include rotary and fixed wing training, artillery firing and vehicle and troop manoeuvres.
I have been visiting the SPTA for the last 10 years, and during this time I have captured some interesting images during large scale exercises, and the general training of the air assets that are using the plain on a daily basis.
Some of these images are displayed below.
