Raf Fast Jet Assists Flood Relief Efforts from the Air

Image Shows a 31 Sqn, RAF Marham Tornado being loaded with a Raptor Pod before a sortie to provide imagery of the Thames Valley area.
The Royal Air Force today launched one of its Tornado fast jets to capture a highly detailed aerial picture of the areas affected by the floods, after a request by Gold commanders in the Thames Valley.
The deployment of the Tornado GR4 from RAF Marham in Norfolk has produced detailed imagery that will aid the planning and co-ordination of multi-agency efforts to provide relief to local residents and communities.
The aircraft, operated by the RAF's 31 Squadron, is equipped with the highly versatile RAPTOR - Reconnaissance Air Pod for Tornado - which enables it to gather sophisticated, high-resolution imagery. The imagery, now being processed and evaluated by analysts at RAF Marham, will be passed to civilian authorities for their use

Inflatable Raiding Craft are small zodiac type craft, five metres long that can carry five fully equipped Royal Marines Commandos. They are capable of a speed of twenty knots for up to two hours
The principal role of RFA Argus is to serve as a Primary Casualty Receiving Ship (PCRS). She has a fully equipped 100-bed medical complex on board, which can be uniquely tailored to deliver cutting-edge treatment afloat.
The unit has a state-of-the-art emergency department, resuscitation and surgical facilities, a radiology suite that includes a CT scanner, a critical care unit, a high dependency unit and a 70-bed general ward.
