Anniversary

After 3 x 30 minute presentations on ‘Modern Day Pilot selection and Training.’ Followed by an informative presentation on Weapon System Operators (WSOp) Training (Perhaps a new term for some of you.) Essentially, nowadays all Non-Commissioned Aircrew are WSOp’s. The new categories are; Acoustic, Electronic Warfare, linguist, and Crewman. The final presentation was given by Flt Lt Rogan, where he gave a personal description of his experiences during Operation Corporate in the Falkland Islands. The members then got to look at the newly fashioned ‘Pulse’ maintenance section within our hangar. (Remember the non Special Forces (SF) aircraft are pooled for use and reside in Number 2 and 3 hangars. After this lunch was taken in the Officer’s Mess followed by the AGM.

The reunion

I look forward to meeting many of you at the reunion and I am sure that the whole Squadron sees it not only as an opportunity to swap ‘warstories’ but also to remember those who did not come back. Wg Cdr Naismith with a veteranThe 11 May, which as we all know was the 90th Anniversary of the formation of 18 Squadron, saw the first Association Reunion, held on the Squadron at RAF Odiham.
