Wing Commander

Len McKee

We regret to announce the passing on the 1st April 2022 of William Leonard (Len) McKee.

Len entered 77 Entry (C Sqn) in September 1957 and graduated in July 1960.
He was one of the first navigators trained at Cranwell, finishing as an Under Officer.
After several tours, Len arrived on 12 Sqn in 1973 and was a Flt Cdr. He was instrumental in working out maritime attack tactics (something that the RAF had forgotten about since the end of WW2 !) including the introduction of both versions of the Martel Air to Surface Missile.
He retired as a wing commander in 1995.
