RAF Tornados depart on long-range Libya sorties

An RAF mission on Wednesday night, 10 August, saw six Tornado GR4 aircraft, launched from RAF Marham in Norfolk, conduct eight-hour round trip sorties over Libya.

Armed with Storm Shadow missiles, the jets targetted elements of Colonel Gaddafi's military command and control facilities and air defence infrastructure.

The Tornados, some from RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland and some from Marham, were playing a crucial role in protecting Libyan civilians as authorised under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.
