The head of the Royal Air Force is set to stay in his role until the summer of 2023.
Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, will stay in the role for one more year, instead of stepping down after three years in the job this summer.
The extension to his time in the job was made when Admiral Sir Tony Radakin was appointed the new Chief of Defence Staff.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston took over as the head of the RAF in July 2019.
Previously, he had served as the Commander of British Forces in Cyprus and Assistant Chief of the Air Staff.
