E3D Sentry AWACS Aircraft
An E-3D Sentry aircraft flown by 8 Squadron based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.
The RAF operates seven E-3D Sentry aircraft in the airborne surveillance and command-and-control role. The aircraft are based at RAF Waddington, where they are operated by Nos 8 and 23 Squadrons as the UKs contribution to the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force.
The E-3D also forms one arm of the UK Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) triad of Sentinel R1, E-3D and Nimrod R1 aircraft. Whilst primarily procured as an airborne early warning aircraft, the E- 3D has been extensively employed in the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) role.
The E-3D Sentry, known to the RAF as the AEW1, is based on the commercial Boeing 707-320B aircraft, which has been extensively modified and updated to accommodate modern mission systems. Mission endurance is approximately 11 hours (over 5000nmls), although this can be extended by air - to- air refuelling.
The E-3D is the only aircraft in the RAFs inventory capable of air-to-air refuelling by both the American flying-boom system and the RAFs probe-and-drogue method
