International SO event

This event has finished

Quick Reaction Alert (QRA), A state of readiness that many air forces around the world maintain, allowing them to respond to any possible air threat within their area of responsibility. But with current safety levels of modern aviation, means that QRA pilots are commonly scrambling to unresponsive aircraft or aircraft in distress. The UK currently operates 2 QRA bases, RAF Coningsby to the south and RAF Lossiemouth to the north.

The United Kingdom and Ireland, Special operations department, would like to invite you to Exercise Blackdog. The operation will allow you to utilise and develop the essential skills of QRA, which include interception, identification and air to air refuelling.
