606 Sqn Awarded the Inspectors Cup
As we go to press it has been announced that 606 (Chiltern) Sqn RAuxAF, based at RAF Benson have been awarded The Inspector’s Cup.
This award is given to the RAuxAF unit which has enjoyed notable success during the past year. This year it is awarded to 606 Sqn RAuxAF for two initiatives which have brought great benefit not just to the Sqn but the wider RAuxAF. These were Ex Chiltern Kite (covered in a previous issue of LZDZ), although previously run for 606 Sqn personnel, this iteration was the largest collective training event run for RAF reservist personnel in many years, with participants from a number of RAuxAF sqns. The exercise provided a show case of PTVR capability to visitors including senior Air Command personnel, politicians, employers and members of the Reserves Forces and Cadets Associations from across the UK. The second event was the short notice support to the Royal Windsor Castle Tattoo. With the participation of personnel from six other RAuxAF Sqn’s, OC 606 Sqn took the lead in conceiving, planning and delivering an arena display in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen.
