Over the last five calendar years Maritime Patrol Aircraft from the United States, Canada, France, Germany and Norway have temporarily deployed to the UK for exercises, training and maritime operations.

We do not discuss the detail of such maritime operations as this would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
