First Qatar Mirages to arrive today at Souda

6 Norwegians F-16s to arrive today at Souda

5 SJ F-15Es arrived at Lakenheath, but not sure what they will do (either head home, or fly into the action)

USMC AV-8Bs have also been reported as taking part in the action. Presumably from the USS Kearsarge?

I heard the Dutch KDC-10 will support the Norwegian F-16s on their way to Italy. Any news if it will stay there too?
