Wing commander Nikki Duncan is the new Station Commander at RAF Wittering, taking over from Wing Commander Jez Case.
Under the guidance of Wing Commander Case, RAF Wittering navigated a significant period of change including the Station’s successful emergence from the pandemic while continuing to meet commitments to Defence.
Wing Commander Case said:
“It has been an immense privilege to command RAF Wittering. The Station’s personnel, service and civilian, have risen to every challenge and it has been an honour to work with people who are so committed to supporting the Royal Air Force. Getting to know the people of RAF Wittering and the local communities in Wittering, Stamford, Peterborough, Rutland, and Leicester has also been incredibly rewarding – thank you.”
Wing Commander Duncan arrived at the Cambridgeshire Station in July 2022 as Officer Commanding Support. She joined the Royal Air Force in 1990 and is an experienced People Operations Officer. She said:
“It is an honour and privilege to be made the Station Commander at RAF Wittering which has a long and proud history. It is a challenging role, but the Station has a talented and dedicated team of service, civilian and contractor personnel who will continue to deliver and support our Defence outputs. I am also looking forward to working with our friends and neighbours in the local community.
“My thanks must go to Wg Cdr Case not just for such a comprehensive handover but also for all his hard work during his time as Station Commander.”
Wg Cdr Duncan is married with one daughter and Bo the dog. She is a keen sportsperson and has represented the RAF at snowboarding on several occasions, captaining the Ladies Team for five years and has individually won the Inter Services title three times.
