Tornado al Engliterei

Într-o declaraţie postată Vinerea trecută pe site-ul oficial al RAF, secretarul apărării Engliterei, Dr. Liam Fox, a anunţat cu plăcere că misiunile NATO în Libia se vor extinde cu încă 90 de zile.

În discursul său, Liam Fox a anunţat şi că… avioanele Typhoon se vor întoarce în UK, lăsând misiunile pe mâna bombardierelor Tornado!!

„The UK has remained at the forefront of the campaign since its inception and, as the Prime Minister made clear, the United Kingdom will maintain its commitment as necessary. Our support to the people of Libya, at this critical time is tight, and the NATO mission to protect civilians must continue until it is no longer necessary. „

„So we decided to keep 16 Tornado aircraft in operations to maintain the required rate of sorties by fighter-bombers fast, and we intend to keep two attack helicopters in the theater (of operations) for how long it takes. The good progress made so far will bring home four Typhoon jets and three attack helicopters in the short term, without affecting our ability to comply with Resolution 1973 the Security Council of the United Nations. „

„Since the beginning of military operations in March, the attacks of the RAF and Army Air Corps damaged or destroyed more than 970 targets of the previous regime, which threatened the Libyan people.”
