PM Brown visits RAF in Basra

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown thanked troops with the 901 Expeditionary Air Wing stationed in the southern Iraqi province of Basra.
Brown, on a regional tour for the International Monetary Fund, told British forces in Iraq in support of Operation Telic, their Iraqi war effort, they were playing a key role in securing the war-torn country, the British Royal Air Force said.

The 901 Expeditionary Air Wing is in the region on a support mission for fixed-wing aircraft operations.

"It was good to see the prime minister here," said Cmdr. Tony Barmby. "Despite his busy program in the Middle East, I do know the prime minister insisted on making time to visit RAF and other U.K. service personnel."
