Aircraft & Squadrons
RAF Linton-on-Ouse was one of the busiest airfields in the UK, tasked with the training of future fast jet pilots for the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy but the Royal Air Force will cease use of RAF Linton-on-Ouse by 2020.

Tucano T1s at Linton-on-Ouse were replaced by the Texan T6C turboprop, which is now operated at RAF Valley to provide Basic Flying Training from late 2019 using the Texan T6C turboprop as part of the UK Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS).

72(R) Squadron - Tucano T1.
Yorkshire University Air Squadron - Tutor T1.
No.9 Air Experience Flight - Tutor T1.

72 Squadron was based at Linton-on-Ouse with the Tucano T1 providing Basic Fast Jet Training but has moved to RAF Valley with the new Texan T1.

History
RAF Linton-on-Ouse was opened in 1937 as a bomber airfield. During WW2, bombers dropped propaganda leaflets over Germany and later launched bomber raids on Norway, The Netherlands, Germany and Italy. The station was also allocated to the Royal Canadian Air Force during the war.

After the War, RAF Linton-on-Ouse was used to transport passengers and freight back to the UK and later became a Fighter Command Station operating the Meteor, Sabre, and Hunter until 1957. That year it became home to No 1 Flying Training School and was used for training Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots.

Today, RAF Linton-on-Ouse provides Basic Fast Jet Training, and successful students are awarded their Wings and proceed to RAF Valley for Advanced Training.

On Tuesday the 27th of June 2017, a formation of four Tucano T1 aircraft from 72(R) Squadron conducted a 'Grand Flypast' to commemorate the Squadron's Centenary. The Nationwide route overflew all bar two of the Squadrons previous bases and encompassed locations linked to the Squadrons surviving WWII veterans. More details can be found here.

It has been announced that the Royal Air Force will cease use of RAF Linton-on-Ouse and draw-down operations in 2020.
