AP-3C Orion Returns from Middle East


After nearly 10 years of operational service in the Middle East, the final AP-3C Orion aircraft from 92 Wing, RAAF Base Edinburgh, has returned home to Australia. More than 3500 personal from 92 Wing have rotated through the almost decade-long deployment where the Orion's have been responsible for conducting overland intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance tasks in Afghanistan and Iraq, maritime patrols of the Arabian Gulf and North Arabian Sea and more recently, counter-piracy missions in the vicinity of Somalia.
