The Fairy Gannet played an important role while participating in operations against dissident tribesmen in Aden and incursions by aircraft from the Yemen during the 1960s. As well as a flight of AEW.3 early warning Gannets from 849 Squadron, each carrier operated at least one mark COD.4 for general use and communications with shore-based stations. This series of photographs was taken at RAF Khormaksar.
