Operation Shader continues

Two RAF Typhoons FGR.4 (reg. ZK351, ZK362) are returning to RAF Akrotiri, a British base in the south of the island of Cyprus, where they carried out a mission as part of Operation Shader.
The mission likely took place over northwestern Iraq. Supporting the pair of aircraft is an Airbus KC.2 (reg. ZZ333)

Operation Shader is the operational code name given to the contribution of the United Kingdom in the ongoing military intervention against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The operation involves the British Army providing ground support and training to allied forces fighting against ISIL, the Royal Air Force providing humanitarian aid airdrops, reconnaissance and airstrikes, and the Royal Navy providing escort to allied carrier battle groups.
