FLYPAST – FAST, LOW, UNBEATABLE

FlypastThe latest edition of Fly Past  profiles the Buccaneer in its series of Britain’s Cold War Guardians.  Two articles cover the role of No. 208 Squadron with the squadron’s last CO, Wing Commander Nigel Huckins, outlining the twilight  years in his article Duty Carried Out.  I look at the squadron’s role assigned to the Northern Region of NATO (AFNORTH) and the development of the training to suit this demanding and unique role.  This includes detachments to train at Red Flag, Maple Flag and the Tactical Bombing Competition in addition to regular visits to Royal Norwegian Air Force airfields.
