Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, has visited RAF Waddington Air Base.

Prince Edward was accompanied by Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Toby Dennis, and Station Commander Group Captain Mark Lorriman-Hughes. The Prince’s last visit was in September 2021 on the occasion of the retirement of an aircraft.

Edward is the airbase’s Honorary Air Commodore, and he met with ambassadors for science, technology, engineering and math from local schools, among others. The children proudly showed what they worked on in class.

Flight Lieutenant Graham Holt said, “It was nice meeting him and seeing how he interacted with the local schools who were happy to show him their air vehicles as part of Project X.”

Squadron Leader Angela Hemlin, 51 Squadron’s Flight Commander Safety and Assurance Officer said: “It was an honour to receive and update HRH on 51 Sqn’s work and achievements this year. He was also able to chat with aircrew and engineers who could tell HRH about their valuable contributions to operations.”
