The fourth Royal Air Force Poseidon MRA1 maritime patrol aircraft, which will arrive at
tomorrow, has been named Spirit of Reykjavik in honour of the role played by the Icelandic capital and people in enabling the Allied victory in the Battle of the Atlantic.
During World War II a lack of range prevented RAF Coastal Command aircraft and crews from covering the entire ocean from their stations in the UK. In the area they couldn’t patrol, wolf packs of German U-boat submarines wreaked havoc on the Allied ships bringing essential food and supplies to the UK, without which it could not have carried on the war effort. The introduction of the long range Liberator (B-24) bomber and a new airfield, seaplane base and refuelling port at Reykjavik which extended the range of RAF aircraft and
escort vessels had near immediate effect as the German submariners lost their immunity from air attack in the North Atlantic air gap.
The first three Poseidon aircraft have been named Pride of Moray, City of Elgin and Terence Bulloch DSO DFC. The RAF Poseidon fleet, which will total nine aircraft, will provide cutting-edge maritime patrol capabilities working side-by-side with the Royal Navy to secure the seas around the UK and abroad.
