520th Aircraft Generation Squadron, USAF.

Formed at RAF Upper Heyford on 31 October 1981, the mission of the 520th Aircraft Generation Squadron was, through its aircraft maintenance, weapons services,
specialists and support branches and the transient alert section, to provide safe, reliable, mission-ready aircraft in sufficient numbers to support the wing’s operational commitment.

Additionally, the squadron provided safe, reliable and timely munitions support to respond rapidly and effectively to sustain the combat strike and attack capability of the wing. The squadron also provided flightline support of all avionics systems installed in the wing’s aircraft and servicing and maintenance support to all transient aircraft.
