25 Years of NATO AWACS

Post by wildbill » Sun May 13, 2007 1:09 pm

On 28 June 1982, the E-3A Component was formally activated and has continued to play a vital role in NATO operations. Twenty-five years later, the NATO Airborne Early Warning & Control Force E-3A Component welcomes you to a unique celebration in order to commemorate 25 years of successful mission accomplishment.

On 16-17 June 2007, to celebrate this event, the Component will open its gates to the public, offering visitors a closer look at its history, airplanes and daily activities.

The highlight of the event will be a unique static display with aircraft assembled from the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control Force (NAEW&CF) and its partner nations. In addition to the static display, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the cultures of our different member countries.

A Nations Corner will provide specialties from all of our participating nations and entertainment will take place on several stages around the event area. There will be musical performances and dance groups from the local area and NATO nations.

As this celebration will be a unique event for NATO’s only flying unit, the Committee and the members of the Component are looking forward to welcoming visitors to come and enjoy this milestone in our history.
