NATO PA Defence Committee

Jason toured key military establishments in the UK with fellow NATO Parliamentarians.

He saw the operation against Somali Piracy at Maritime Command HQ Northwood. He met up with some old colleagues at RAF Waddington, near Lincoln – where Jason was once based – and which is home to the E3D Sentry AWACS (pictured below).

He was briefed on NATO Space and Ballistic Missile Defence at RAF Fylingdales in North Yorkshire; they are currently tracking 16,500 objects in space. The tour then ended at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde home to the UK’s Independent Nuclear Deterrent submarine force.
