No 452 Squadron Tindal Flight is responsible for Air Traffic Control (ATC) at RAAF Base Tindal. Formed as a fighter squadron during World War II and operating until 1945, 452 Squadron was reformed in December 2010 as a subordinate unit of No 44 Wing. Headquartered at RAAF Base Darwin, 452 Squadron provides ATC services for Defence establishments at Darwin and Tindal in the Northern Territory, and Amberley, Oakey and Townsville in Queensland. RAAF air traffic controllers are known as Joint Battlefield Airspace Controllers, because they are capable not only of providing conventional ATC, but also can perform a tactical role providing airspace coordination and control in military operations. 452 Squadron was the first Royal Australian Air Force squadron to be formed in Britain during World War II. It served in the European theatre from 1941 prior to reassembling in Australia in 1943. It played a significant role in the defence of Darwin.
