An aircraft comes in to land at Britain's Royal Air Force Base in Akrotiri, Cyprus, on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014. British Bases spokesperson Kristian Gray says a number of Tornado surveillance aircraft will be stationed at the base from where they will carry out missions to support thousands of people fleeing advancing Islamic militant forces in northern Iraq. Gray says three C-130 transport aircraft and a Voyager refueling plane will also be using the base to assist in the relief effort.
