A picture sent through by the MOD of two RAF C17s currently in Gibraltar on Routine Operations.
C17s have been in production since 1991 and are currently used by the RAF, the United States Air Force as well as the Royal Australian and Canadian Air Force.
Her Majesty The Queen's speech this year was a great boost of confidence to all the Gibraltarians who have sometimes doubted the British support and action over the territorial waters and other issues. Yesterday, Her Majesty announced that:
“My government will ensure the security, good governance and development of the Overseas Territories, including by protecting the Falkland Islanders’ and Gibraltarians’ right to determine their political futures.”
The Governor’s office yesterday released a statement in regard to the recent Spanish newspaper, ABC’s interview with Spanish Secretary of State, Mendez de Benito. In the article, the Secretary of State said “there are bilateral talks going on with London”.
A statement released by the FCO says:
A group of members from Dolphins Youth Club spent Saturday morning helping paint Nun’s Well alongside other members from the community which also included the Explorer Scouts. The event was organised by Tommy Finlayson of the ‘Wake Up Gibraltar Group’ who had previously obtained the go ahead for the event via the Volunteer Projects Coordination meetings with the Heritage Department (Museum), the Gibraltar Heritage Trust and GONHS. The youth club had previously worked alongside Tommy in last year’s ‘Clean Up The World’ event at the Northern Defences.
