    Default Local recco

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to know if the term "Local recco" regulary found in the ORBs has the same meaning as "patrol" also used.

    Thanks

    Phil

    Hi Phil
    Is this not the same as a Sector Recce.
    A Sector Recce was often the first flight from a new base to familiarise ourselves with the aircraft and the country surrounding the airfield so that the pilot could find the way back to base again.

    Regards
    Andy
