Middle Wallop Base Visit on the 9th of February 2011

 

 

I visited Army Air Corps Middle Wallop on the 9th of February 2011. I was luckily part

of a base visit organised by the FCAEG. The weather wasn't bad at all, a bit grey

but it could have been a lot worse. Our guide was superb, I would love to visit

again should the opportunity arise.

We had terrific access to both the helicopters in the hangars and on the flightline.

Middle Wallop is a British Army base, it hosts 2 Regiment Army Air Corps and the School of Army Aviation.

The role of 2 Regiment is training and so AAC Middle Wallop is the base where most

Army Air Corps pilots begin their careers. The base was previously under Royal Air Force control

and it was then known as RAF Middle Wallop.

Present during my visit were numerous Westland Lynx's, Aerospatiale Gazelles, AH-64 Apache Gunships,

my favourite , and it also plays host to the AAC's Historic Flight, which, we were informed,

has thankfully secured enough funding for the 2011 display season.
