'One of the most significant RAF airfields in the world', says Governor on Northern Dispersal's recommission

The Governor Sir David Steele attended today's opening ceremony of the RAF’s Northern Dispersal, following extensive upgrade works there.

Speaking to GBC afterwards, he said 'this piece of land is one of the most significant airfields the Royal Airforce has throughout the world'.

As well as resurfacing works, lights have been installed to allow for engineer works on military craft to be carried out at night.

While COVID offered a quieter spell during which to deliver the upgrade, plans for the project have been underway for some time, with collaboration between all agencies including RAF Gibraltar, the contractor and Gibraltar International Airport.
