902 EAW Organisation

902 EAW is focused on supporting ongoing operations in Afghanistan and aiding towards the transition to a more stable nation. With that aim, support is given to ISAF forces on the ground via ISTAR aircraft such as Sentinel and their associated ground elements.

The VC10 provides air-to-air refueling to an array of coalition aircraft including RAF and other coalition air forces. This allows combat aircraft stationed in or close to Afghanistan, more time on-task, thereby greatly improving its capacity to provide Close Air Support to both Afghan and ISAF troops on the ground.

Force Elements

5 (Army Cooperation) Squadron, based at RAF Waddington, operating Sentinel Airborne Stand Off Radar aircraft.

101 Squadron, based at RAF Brize Norton, operating VC10 Air-to-Air Refueling aircraft.
