RAF Lossiemouth

Saudi Green Flag 07

Exercise Saudi Green Flag 07 was the second half of a squadron exchange, in which 617 Sqn at RAF Lossiemouth hosted eight Tornado aircraft from the Royal Saudi Air Force as part of a joint military exercise. This was the first time the RAF had hosted the RSAF.

From their base at Dhahran the RSAF deployed eight Tornado Interdictor Strike aircraft from 75 Squadron. They arrived in the UK on the 22nd August at RAF Marham for a fuel stop after stopovers at Akrotiri in Cyprus and Trapani in Italy. Unfortunately their arrival was heralded by atrocious weather, sadly they didnít bring the sun with them. After refuelling the aircraft left for their final destination and home for the exercise Lossiemouth.

            The flying programme ran from 28 August until 7 September 2007
