On 14 December, 1964, Royal Air Force Khormaksar was reorganised in order to obtain increased efficiency through greater economy of effort and improved span of control. As the website is mainly concerned with the operational flying carried out by the Hunter units, the organisation of the flying wings only are outlined below.
Station. OC Operations Wing and OC Technical Wing were placed in a special position as staff officers to the Station Commander for operational matters and technical matters respectively, although this in no way affected the right of direct access to the Station Commander of officers commanding flying wings.
Operations Wing. The wing was placed under the command of a wing commander, general duties, who was to responsible for control of the Station Operations Centre and the flying support units. In addition, he was responsible to the Station Commander for the tasking of all aircraft, advising him on all matters affecting the fulfilment of the station’s operational task as directed by Headquarters Middle East Command.
The then present two flying wings were reconstituted to form three major units, named, organised and commanded as follows:
Strike Wing Strike Wing was born out of Tactical Wing on 14 December 1964 and remained under the command of the then current OC Tactical Wing. In its new form it consisted of Nos. 8 and 43 (Hunter FGA.9) Squadrons, No. 1417 (Hunter FR.10) Flight, No. 37 (Shackleton MR.2) Squadron and Strike Wing Servicing Squadron.
Medium Range Transport (MRT) Wing MRT Wing was placed under the command of the then current OC 105 Argosy Squadron, whose appointment was renamed: OC MRT Wing and No. 105 Squadron. The Wing comprised No. 105 (Argosy) Squadron, No. 84 (Beverley) Squadron and MRT Servicing Squadron.
Short Range Transport (SRT) SRT Wing remained under the command of the then current OC Transport Wing and consisted of No. 26 (Belvedere) Squadron, No. 78 (Twin Pioneer) Squadron, Middle East Communications Squadron, Search and Rescue Flight, and SRT Servicing Squadron.
