Main article: French Air Force



The French Air Force was organized into Escadres (Wings),but this level was disbanded in the 90's. It is now composed of Escadrons (Squadrons). In turn, each escadron is made up of several Escadrilles (Flights). The designations of many escadrilles can be traced back to their World War I heritage. Escadrilles with the BR. designation flew Breguet aircraft, C. flew Caudrons, N. the Nieuport fighters, SAL. Salmson, and SPA. the SPAD fighters.

http://www.raf.mod.uk/organisation/84squadron.cfm

84 Squadron was born in January 1917, equipped with SE5 fighter aircraft and was soon despatched to France . During its 15 months service in WWI the Squadron’s pilots proved very successful and destroyed 129 enemy aircraft and 50 observation balloons. After spending a year as part of the Army of Occupation in post war Germany, the Squadron was disbanded as part of a major reduction in the Armed Forces in 1920 (the first of many!!). 84 Squadron was reformed just 8 months later in Baghdad and spent the years leading up to WWII in Iraq.

In 1939, the Squadron moved to the Western Desert flying Blenheim bombers, and took part in the campaigns in Greece, Iraq, Syria and Persia. In 1942 84 Squadron was transferred to the Far East theatre, carrying out raids on Japanese forces in Sumatra, Batavia and Java. Japanese forces overran the Sqn in Java and all were taken prisoner except a small party including the CO and 11 aircrew. The Squadron reformed in India for the remainder of WWII and went on to serve in Malaya and Singapore . 84 Squadron became a transport squadron in 1953, equipped with Valetta aircraft flying from the Canal Zone, Nicosia and Aden . As Aden was closed, the Squadron re-equipped with Andover aircraft and moved to Sharjah, until being disbanded in 1971.

84 Squadron was reformed almost immediately at RAF Akrotiri with Westland Whirlwind helicopters in the Search and Rescue and Support Helicopter roles. Conversion to Wessex helicopters occurred in 1981 and the 4 aircraft carried a blue band, to reflect the UN association, and the traditional Squadron card suit individual marking. 84 Sqn is unique in being the only RAF Sqn to have been based overseas for its entire Service history and the Sqn’s official badge of a scorpion reflects its long association with the Middle East.

Manned with a combination of Search and Rescue and Support Helicopter aircrew, 84 Sqn provides Search and Rescue cover to the Sovereign Base Areas in Cyprus, providing support to visiting Fast Jet Detachments and a small lift capability to the Theatre Reserve Battalion based on the island. 84 Sqn operate the Griffin HAR 2 helicopter, a variant of the aircraft used at RAF Shawbury for training. The Sqn is manned to provide 24 hour coverage all year round.

As well as supporting British forces in Cyprus, 84 Sqn also provides support to the wider Cypriot and international community. In the past year, the Sqn has been involved in 3 large scale rescues off the coast of Lebanon and Israel in conjunction with multi national forces. Closer to home, 84 Sqn have rescued Cypriots both inside the Sovereign Base Areas and further a field. The Griffin HAR 2 also has a fire fighting capability, giving the facility to drop a large amount of water directly on the source of a fire and has been involved in countless sorties both on Sovereign Base Areas territory and in Cyprus.

84 Sqn remains on one hour's readiness to support British interests in the Eastern Mediterranean. Hoot and Roar!

After having participated in operations in Albania during the Second World War, the 36th speaks up Castelvetrano to work against Malta and the British fleet. Equipped with the S.84 in 1942, 36 Squadron moved to Pisa where he is re-equipped with S.79. After the armistice, the 36th took part in the War of Liberation with the songs and Z.1007 G.12. In 1948, the 36th Wing from Guidonia debut and then to Latin America, and was disbanded in 1955. In 1960 he formed the 36th Air Brigade Interdiction Strategy, by missiles ICBM Jupiter, operating at Gioia del Colle until 1963. The 36th Fighter Wing is instead reconstituted in 1966, groups XII and 156 °, equipped, respectively, with F-86K and F-84F, later replaced by the F-104S. In June 1984 the 156th Group received the first "Tornado" in 1991 participating in the "locusts". In 1995, the twelfth group is re-equipped with the Tornado ADV.

By DANICA KIRKA, Associated Press Danica Kirka, Associated Press – 48 mins ago

LONDON – Britain will send Typhoon and Tornado fighter jets to air bases "in the coming hours" to prevent Moammar Gadhafi's forces from mounting air strikes against anti-government rebels in Libya, Prime Minister David Cameron said Friday.

The promise of action came after the U.N. Security Council approved a no-fly zone Thursday over Libya, the legal requirement paving the way for military action. Cameron sidestepped the issue of potential civilian casualties from any military intervention, saying the situation could get radically worse if Gadhafi's forces take the rebel-held city of Benghazi.

"We do not want to see a bloodbath in Benghazi," Cameron told lawmakers in the House of Commons. He added the decision was about protecting people in Libya and insisted it was "not about choosing the government of Libya."

Britain, France and NATO were holding emergency meetings Friday on enforcing the no-fly zone, but there was no word yet from the U.S. military on what role it may take. French government spokesman Francois Baroin would not comment on "where, how, what target, or in what form" the air strikes would take.

Libya responded to the diplomatic onslaught by declaring an immediate cease-fire, firmly pushing the ball back to the allies.

NATO surveillance AWACS planes flying off the Libyan coast are already providing 24-hour coverage of the situation in the air and on the battlefields.

After the U.N. resolution, President Barack Obama spoke with Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy to coordinate further action on the no-fly zone. The White House said in a statement that "that Libya must immediately comply with all terms of the resolution and that violence against the civilian population of Libya must cease."



The Americans have positioned a host of forces and ships in the region, including submarines, destroyers, amphibious assault and landing ships with some 400 Marines. The French carrier Charles De Gaulle is also in Toulon.

Analysts said no-fly zone aircraft would be flying from NATO bases such as in Sigonella, Sicily, Aviano in northern Italy, Istres in southern France, and Ventiseri-Solenzara in Corsica. The Italian air base at Trapani-Birgi at the western tip of Sicily, about 300 miles (500 kilometers) north of the Libyan capital of Tripoli, is already being used by the AWACS planes that would support any aerial missions over Libya.

The North Atlantic Council, NATO's top decision-making body, decided Friday to speed up planning and will meet again in the next few days when plans are complete, an alliance spokeswoman said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the delicacy of the situation.

Envoys said there was no discussion at the NATO meeting of any air strikes against targets in Libya.

Asked whether NATO would go along with any unilateral action, Martin Povejsil, the Czech Republic's NATO envoy, said none was imminent.

"I do not expect any such action in the next few hours or next few days," he said.

The Germans, who are opposed to any military intervention in Libya, are considering sending German-manned NATO airborne warning and control planes to help monitor Afghanistan's airspace — a move that would free up scarce AWACS to be dispatched to Libya's airspace.

Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle confirmed that such a decision was considered, but stressed there was no decision yet

Danish Defense Minister Gitte Lillelund Bech said her country can send four F-16 fighter plans plus two spare F-16s and a cargo plane with ammunition to help monitor the no-fly zone. A formal decision in Parliament is required before the planes can take off, but he said they might leave as early as Saturday morning.

Spain, too, offered to help — making two air bases available to NATO if the alliance intervenes in Libya, as well as its naval and air forces.

Military experts, however, cautioned that the consequences of a no-fly zone are unpredictable. The former head of the British army, Richard Dannatt, said Friday it was crucial to proceed cautiously "so we don't get into the kind of situation that we got into in Iraq by not having a Plan B for the morning after."

Charles Heyman, defense analyst and editor of the Armed Forces of the UK, said the Americans will have the bulk of the military responsibility even though Britain and France have taken the lead in pushing for the wide-ranging U.N. resolution.

"It's easy for the British and the French to talk a lot about it when they actually don't have all the right equipment to maintain a no-fly zone on their own," he said. "This no-fly zone requires AWACs surveillance planes, and the ability to take out air defenses, and the ability to strike at targets on the ground without putting your aircraft at risk, and that requires standoff missiles that can be launched from the air without getting too close to the targets."

He said the British and French have some but not all of this components and will need American help and coordination even though Libyan air defenses have been weakened in the last two decades.

"The AWACS are NATO assets, but paid for by the USA," he said. "They are flown by NATO crews, but they are U.S. craft, U.S. equipment," Heyman said.
