Visit by Chief of Joint Operations
The newly appointed Chief of Joint Operations (UK) Air Marshal Sir Stuart Peach KCB CBE has enjoyed a busy, week-long visit to the Falklands. On arrival, Air Marshal Peach headed straight out to HMS Manchester via Lynx helicopter, where he was given a naval capability presentation and a short and medium range gunnery demonstration. 905 EAW then provided an air capability demonstration with a C130 Hercules followed by an F3 Tornado running an attack profile as part of an air defence exercise. Both the Ground Defence Force and Roulement Infantry Company also gave excellent demonstrations before Air Marshal Peach was invited to open the newly refurbished NAAFI all ranks bar, the Gull and Penguin.
