RAF strikes Libya from Marham, longest mission since Falklands

In the RAF's longest mission since the Black Buck missions flown by its Avro Vulcans during the 1982 Falklands conflict, Tornadoes from RAF Marham have struck a target, said to be part of Libya's Integrated Air Defence System near Tripoli by flying a 3000-mile mission. The operation was supported by VC10 and Tristar tankers as well as E-3D Sentry and Sentinel surveillance aircraft.
