HC Deb 15 July 1991 vol 195 cc95-6W
Mr. Foulkes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what was the title of the exercise in which RAF Tornado GRI participated in Alaska in June 1990; how many aircraft took part; and if he will provide details of any subsequent or planned RAF participation in exercises in Alaska.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

Four Tornado GRI aircraft deployed to Alaska in June 1990 for a training exercise, titled Distant Frontier. The possibility of a further such exercise is under discussion with the United States authorities.
