HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY 10 SQUADRON
A warm welcome to the 10 Squadron Association website. The Association was created 30 years ago with the aims of preserving the spirit and comradeship formed during service on the unit and developing a close relationship with the present day Squadron. Membership is open to all who have served, or continue to serve, on 10 Squadron and also to relatives and friends of former Squadron members. Our membership includes those from the Halifax days, through the Dakota, Canberra, Victor and VC10 eras and now the new A330 Voyager.
Based at RAF Brize Norton, as part of the AirTanker Hub, 10 Squadron operates the magnificent Voyager aircraft in the Air Transport and Air-to-Air Refuelling roles and is co-located with the second unit to fly the type, 101 Squadron. The 2 squadrons employ a joint manning strategy on flying tasks, without losing a strong sense of individual unit identity. This close relationship between the squadrons can be traced back to 1984 when 101 Squadron reformed at Brize Norton to fly VC10 tankers alongside 10 Squadron's VC10 transport aircraft. Between 2005 and 2011, whilst 10 Squadron was disbanded, 101 Squadron was still operating the VC10 and the Association was privileged to be hosted by the unit during our annual visits to the station.
