Located at RAAF Base Williamtown, No 2 Squadron RAAF operates the Boeing 737 Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft. With roots tracing back to World War I, No 2 Squadron was reformed on 18 January 2000 to operate the Wedgetail, moving to Williamtown in 2004. The Wedgetail AEW&C system combines a modified Boeing 737-700 aircraft with a state-of-the-art Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array radar. Included in the platform are an advanced Identification Friend or Foe system, an expanded passive electronic surveillance system, a flexible, open-system architecture and a sophisticated self-defence capability. Air Force is acquiring six Wedgetails in total. More about the Wedgetail http://ra.af/ezjfs9
