Number 26 Squadron was awarded the Hawker Siddeley Trophy for exceptional delivery of Airbase Operational Support at RAAF Base Williamtown during 2018.
The Squadron provided exceptional operational support for a range of base operations, supporting two FEG headquarters, five Wing headquarters, six flying squadrons, six non-flying squadrons, three Systems Program Offices and various squadron detachments.
CO 26SQN, WGCDR John Stark, said he was extremely proud of the 26SQN team and congratulated the previous Commanding Officer, WGCDR Amanda Cornell, and those posted to the unit in 2018.
“Being recognised as the most proficient Air Force unit with primarily a whole of base function is a fantastic achievement and I would like to congratulate all the members of the Air Force team that contributed to this achievement” he said.
“I have no doubt from what I have seen so far in 2019 that the same standards and operational excellence is being maintained across the unit.”
