An Indian news channel has broadcast a clip of an American F-15 flying in Wales and claimed it is proof of a “full fledged Pakistani invasion” of Afghanistan.

Here’s a screenshot.

Here’s the video.

What does the video actually show?

An American F-15 flying from RAF Lakenheath flying thought the Mach Loop in Wales.

The Mach Loop is a set of valleys, situated between Dolgellau in the north, and Machynlleth in the south (and from which the Mach Loop gets its name), which are regularly used for low level flight training, with flying as low as 250 feet (76 metres) from the nearest terrain.

Map of Mach Loop

“To the south of the Mach Loop there is an area called Tactical Training Area 7T, in which, at specified times, the aircraft may fly as low as 100 feet (30.5 Metres). The Royal Air Force publish a timetable of when the Tactical Training Areas may be in use, however experience shows this to be of little use in determining whether low level flying will take place on a particular day or time.”

Defence reporting in India and Pakistan is utterly toxic so this is hardly surprising.

Comment on India only, when the topic is about India. No such reporting is from Pakistani side on India. Please do not do this monkey-balancing. This India is west’s partner against Communist China, and this is their credibility.

Then why did you reply on my comment, if people are free to comment? It is misleading comment based on unfounded proof, compared to what the whole world saw what Indian media did.

Show us Pakistani reporting that is this blatantly false then. I can give a dozen examples of blatantly made up Indian reporting. Otherwise, you’re just trying to be neutral for the sake of being neutral.

This is disgusting. Such reporting kills news channels. No doubt small, independent channels and individuals are getting popular with honest authentic reporting.

Sadly, the level of negativity between India and Pakistan will make such unchecked news reporting entirely possible – just to score a point against the other. Shame on the news channels that aired that clip!

When have you seen Pakistan sharing video of American jet, alleging it to India using on Kashmir? Bash India, which is in the news. Otherwise, next time you criticise Russia and China, always use the parallel: negativity between UK and Russia, US and China.

Unfortunately channels like Times now, Zee news and a few others are known for broadcasting lies in broad daylight. They are shameless stooges of the Central government. They have been doing this fakery to spread hate against Muslims, protesting farmers and Rights activists. They have full support from government and their repeated lies and hate mongering does not make them accountable ..
Free mainstream media is almost dead in India it’s only the social media which is showing some truth .

Different valley, that was Ogwen Velley if memory serves, this is part of the Mach Loop, probably just before turning down to Tal-y-llyn, south of Cadair Idris

As a British Citizen of Indian Origin, I can confirm here that most of the Indian Media outlet is run by Hindutva Ideologue and they tell lies with impunity. Their only job is to tell lies to the Indian Mass using all sorts of hook or crook method. They are very good at reporting lies, because they keep repeating the same lies again and again such as reiterating even today that the Indian Airforce planes Bombed and killed Hundreds of Alleged Terrorists after encroaching in Pakistan. But the whole world knows the fact that the Indian Fighter Jets only uprooted… Read more »

Sad truth is extremist ideology is not the purview of one religion or cultural group. Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Hindu, Jews, the right of politics the left of politics all have their extremist fringes. The battle for the compassionate middle ground over extremism hate of all kinds seems to be shaping up to be the defining characteristic of yet another century ( interestingly for the last few it’s seems to be the first half that was a real shit fest).
