Do they fly the loop in the school holidays?
Yes, just not at weekends...
If you do go, have a great time, I went a few years ago (need to get back) and it was a great day
Yes, avoid bank holidays and between Christmas and new year where only the Americans are still flying (although the tend to avoid the loop)
Best time in the Loop is when the school is on. RAF personnel also get time off and go for holidays during half term, so it means there is a bit less flying.
Get there whenever you can midweek.
I was there a fortnight ago and had a brilliant day!

Those are awesome. Is it a case of just head up there and hope?
Pack for foul weather, then head up and hope
Would that include a poncho that you can peg down to stop you blowing away?
If you are going today, take a rope and anchor with you. Tie rope round your waist.
