Survival course shows why flights divert, train over countryside

A student of the U.S. Air Force water survival training course swims through 4-foot waves at the Lowestoft College pool in Lowestoft, England, during a course led by survival experts May 22, 2014. The class prepared aircrew for dangerous operating environments created by harsh weather conditions over water. When sea conditions are deemed too hazardous, flight training can be diverted to routes over land, ultimately creating noise heard by local communities.
