CV of OC XXIV – Wing Commander T T Jones BSc (Hons) MA

We have just had the official CV of the current OC XXIV Squadron, so I am posting it on the BLog Book before updating the website. If you are coming along to the Summer Social, it might come in handy.

Wing Commander Tim Jones is currently Officer Commanding XXIV Squadron, the Hercules Operational Conversion Unit. A graduate in physics from Edinburgh University, he joined the RAF in 1995, having also spent 4 years on East Lowlands Universities Air Squadron at RAF Turnhouse. After a brief hold with 10 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton and 111(F) Sqn, RAF Leuchars, he completed flying training on the Jetstream T1 in 1998. Posted to RAF Lyneham, he spent the next 9 years on the Hercules Force flying both the C-130K and C-130J. This period saw his involvement in a number of operations across world, including East Timor, the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan. Specialising in Low Flying, NVG and Airdrop, Jones was promoted to Squadron Leader in 2006 to run the Hercules Tactical Training Flight. For its work delivering training for Op HERRICK in 2007, the Flight was awarded a C-in-C’s Commendation and the Guild of Air Pilots and Navigators’ Brackley Memorial Trophy. Jones was posted to the Ministry of Defence in late 2007 to the Capability Sponsor (Expeditionary Logistics and Support), with responsibilities for C-130, A-400M and C-17. In 2009, he joined ACSC 13 at JSCSC Shrivenham, graduating in July 2010. His current tour began on 31 Jan 2011. He is married to Susie (Maths graduate – Edinburgh) and has a daughter (aged 5) and a son (aged 3). His interests include keeping fit, running his local village hall and playing the piano.
