RAF Tornado squadron home from Afghanistan

March 20, 2012

12(B) Squadron personnel were reunited with loved ones on Sunday, 18 March, after a four-month deployment to Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.

As they disembarked the aircraft the tired but happy airmen were greeted by the RAF Lossiemouth Station Commander, Group Captain Ian Gale. As they descended the aircraft steps after four hard months away from their loved ones, they were piped home by the Station Piper adding to what was already a highly emotional occasion.

It had been a long and tiring journey for the squadron personnel but as the transport eventually pulled into the reception area they were greeted with scenes of joy, happiness and a certain amount of relief by family, friends and those dearest to them.
