The Royal Treatment
Kingdom's Royal Air Force (RAF) on Oct. 26 will stand up a new intelligence
squadron of five MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aircraft at an RAF base near Waddington,
Lincolnshire, according to Air Force spokeswoman Maj. Mary Danner-Jones. The
squadron will be manned solely by RAF airmen, she said. The Reapers will be
used to monitor activity in Afghanistan in support of the RAF and its coalition
partners, a British Embassy spokesman said. The RAF already operates one Reaper
squadron out of Creech Air Force Base in Nevada.
