Front-line Apache regiments are currently based at RAF Dishforth in Yorkshire as well as Wattisham. This summer, 656 and 664 Squadrons will move to Suffolk and two Lynx helicopter squadrons will go to Dishforth. Armed Forces Minister Adam Ingram said Apache technical expertise could now be concentrated at one site. Mr Ingram said: "It has been identified that instead of the front-line Apache squadrons being based at two different locations, it would be more effective and efficient to co-locate all front line Apaches at Wattisham." The move will have no impact on overall job numbers at the two bases, he said. He added: "The interest of our military personnel and their families are very important to us and as such, the moves will be managed to ensure minimal impact on them."
