662 Air Observation Sqn RAF was formed on 30 September 1943, manned by Royal Artillery pilots and RAF crewmen. The squadron was active in the European Theatre of Operations throughout 1944, flying MK3 Austers to conduct counter battery registration and aerial photography tasks.
The squadron remained in Germany in the immediate aftermath of the war and was disbanded there in December 1945. It subsequently reformed as a Royal Auxiliary Air Force unit in Colerne, Wiltshire, before disbanding again in March 1967.
