Woman Nimrod pilot in RAF sex claims.
The woman, one of only a handful to fly the giant four engine submarine hunters, was based at RAF Kinloss in Moray.
But she was taken off flying duties a few weeks ago on medical grounds after she became pregnant.
The nature of the claims of the woman, who has not been identified, were not known, but they were said to be not related to her pregnancy.
It was thought she was unhappy with the way she was treated during her time at RAF Kinloss. She has now been posted to an administrative job in the London area.
An RAF spokesman yesterday confirmed her case had been lodged but refused to reveal any details.
He said: "The RAF take all allegations of sexual harassment and sexual discrimination very seriously.
"A full equal opportunity investigation has been carried out at RAF Kinloss." It is thought the tribunal to hear her case will take place in either Aberdeen or Inverness.
In recent years women officers have flown as Nimrod navigators and pilots.
The Nimrod fleet based at RAF Kinloss currently has one other female pilot. There are also three female navigators.
