ROYAL Air Force Benson has warned residents that it's helicopters will be flying later at night for training due to longer daylight hours.

The base near Wallingford has three helicopters, a Puma, Chinook, and Tutor, that are used for training.

On Facebook, the base said: “Night flying is an essential skill for our crews and as the daylight hours get longer we have to train later into the night.

“Our weekly flying programme is published on our website which gives an indication of when we expect the last flight to land.

“These times are subject to change for operational reasons but we will always do our best to complete our training as early as possible to minimise the impact on our local community.”
