Visit of AOC in C Strike Command Sir Michael Graydon and trip to Muckle Flugga

In 1992 the Unit was visited by Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon, who was accompanied by his wife Margaret. Sir Michael visited a number of sections on both the Domestic & Top Sites. His wife visited some parts of the lower site, including the Station Library and the Station Medical Centre. The Station Commander at the time of the visit was Sqn Ldr Nick (Flash) Gordon.
The AOC in C , his wife and the CO were lucky enough to have good weather and were able to make a visit to the Lighthouse on Muckle Flugga. By this time the lighthouse had 6 keepers, 3 on duty at any one time, working a month on and a month off. Watch changeover and resupply was normally done by helicopter.
