A handful of nice images of the RAF’s 146 C3 transport aircraft in Afghanistan
An RAF BAe 146 from 32 (The Royal Squadron) at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. The aircraft is part of the RAF 904 Expeditionary Air Wing based at Kandahar Air Base.
904 Expeditionary Air Wing (904 EAW) is responsible for the support and operation of RAF assets at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. As well as delivering hundreds of RAF air mobility movements every year with Hercules C-130J and BAE 146 aircraft, the EAW mounts attack and intelligence missions through its detachments of RAF Tornado GR4 fast jets.
The EAW also provides support for a detachment providing launch and recovery of RAF and Reaper remotely piloted air systems.
The Tactical Air Transport Detachment, equipped with Hercules C-130J and BAE 146 aircraft from 30 Squadron and XXXII (The Royal) Squadron, makes sure personnel and equipment can move within and between the eight million square mile joint area of operations for which 83 Expeditionary Air Group is responsible.
