An aircraft parking area at RAF Gibraltar has officially been reopened.

RAF Gibraltar's Northern Military Dispersal was reopened during a ceremony last Thursday by the Governor of Gibraltar, Vice Admiral Sir David Steel, after the completion of a big infrastructure project.

A large section of the area has been resurfaced and four new lighting stanchions have also been fitted.

Works on the area began in April and because of COVID-19 and the relevant safety measures, the project and the works were not completed until mid-September.

Colonel Robert Lindsay, Chief of Staff at British Forces Gibraltar, paid thanks to those involved in the construction, saying their "can-do attitude" was "key" to the completion of the project without further disruption.
