RAF Pilot lands on Gibraltar's famous top Rock


Flying to the job from the UK via Portugal, he used his Chinook to drop the new state-of-the-art gear onto a pre-prepared landing stage on the limestone headland. The upgrade to RAF Gibraltar’s air traffic management system is part of a £1.5billion MoD investment, known as Programme Marshall.

Photographer David Parody said: “The radar is at the northern top end of the Rock and narrow roads leading up do not permit loads to be carried. “A total of five large underslung crates were delivered.” Locals, he said, were thrilled “by the amazing skills of the pilot”.
