AirForces Monthly from Issue 337 from April 2016
In the April issue of AirForces Monthly (AFM) we look at the final weeks of 848 NAS operations as they prepare to retire the Sea King HC4. The Commanding Officer of the Commando Helicopter Force tells AFM what the HC4s brought to the fight.
AFM Contributor Lt Cdr (Ret’d) Rick Burgess provides our Aircraft Profile this month, telling the entry into US Navy service of the Boeing P-8A Poseidon MPA along with the planned upgrades and overseas operators.
Alan Warnes goes behind the scenes with the RAF’s Aggressor squadron and flies a sortie in a 100 Sqn Hawk.
With exclusive images from John Dibbs, Lt Col ‘Cricket’ Renner USAF (Ret’d) visits the Fresno ANG’s 194th Squadron ‘Griffins’, newly converted from the F-16 to the F-15C Eagle.
Our Force Report this month looks at the Cameroon Air Force, which has had to galvanise a diverse range of capabilities in the war against terrorism, as Erwan de Cherisey found out.
Our editorial comment this month, asks if it is about time the RAF had a ‘proper’ aggressor squadron with ‘fighters’. As civilian contract companies look to purchase surplus F-16s and begin operations in Europe, will the RAF be requesting their services? Let us know what you think.
As always, AFM’s Dave Allport brings you the latest military aviation news from around the world.
