When combined with our own organic sensors and those of the jets under our control, we can provide force protection over a massive area.The American surveillance jet fed information directly into Dragon’soperations room, allowing the destroyer to cue fighter jets – US Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornets, US Air Force F-15 Strike Eagles and the Typhoons of Dragon’s affiliated RAF unit, No 6 Squadron – onto their objectives.Another of Dragon’s fighter controllers, Flying Officer Dave Bowl, said:This is a great example of how the front line units of the Royal Air Force can work hand-in-hand with the Royal Navy’s most capable and advanced warship.Dragon is in the second half of her inaugural deployment, which is a mix of carrying out maritime security operations with the UK’s Gulf partners and contributing to the wider air defence of the region, such as when she joined forces with the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group a few weeks ago.[mappress]Press Release, August 21, 2013; Image: Royal Navy HMS Dragon, US Fighter Jets Join Forces in the Gulf View post tag: fighter View post tag: News by topic View post tag: US View post tag: the View post tag: Jetslast_img read more

Northern Foods sees sales slip after fire

first_imgNorthern Foods said this week a fire at its Fletchers bakery in July cost it £5m in lost sales in the first half of its financial year.Chief executive Pat O’Driscoll said Northern Foods is still in discussion with insurers over compensation after the fire burned down a third of the bakery.Speaking after Northern Foods gave a trading update for the 26 weeks to 30 September, O’Driscoll told British Baker that it had had “good interest” from potential buyers of parts of its business. The company put 40% of its business up for sale in May (British Baker, June 2, pg 3), including Fletchers, Smiths Flour Mills and several pastry companies.Northern Foods is also closing its unprofitable Trafford Park savouries bakery in Manchester. A consultation with employees over the plans is now complete and the site is due to close at the end of November, O’Driscoll said (see Friday Essay, pg 13).Northern Foods said in its trading update that sales in its bakery division continued to decline. First half underlying sales in the disposal businesses declined by 6.7%, due to product and site rationalisation, as well as the Fletchers fire.Overall group underlying sales declined by 1.1% on the prior year. Underlying sales in the businesses not up for sale grew by 3.5%.Northern Foods plans to focus on five categories: pizza, biscuits, ready meals, sandwiches and salads, and Christmas puddings when the disposals are completed. Its deadline for that is next May.last_img read more

first_imgOn Friday night, the Trey Anastasio Trio continued their three-night run at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans, LA. Fans have been eager to see Trey, drummer Russ Lawton, and bassist Tony Markellis on the road, particularly given the surprise announcement of the trio’s substitution for Trey Anastasio Band tour back in March—this announcement came on the heels of TAB keyboardist Ray Paczkowski’s emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor. The trio is a throwback to the earliest iteration of Trey’s solo band, which came together after the three musicians first played together at a Vermont performance under the moniker 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes 20 years ago.For the second night of the New Orleans run, Trey Anastasio Trio opened the show with a first set full of fan-favorite Phish tunes like “Blaze On”, “46 Days”, “Tide Turns”, and “Alaska”, as well as Trey Anastasio Band songs “Corona”, “Greyhound Rising”–which had not been played since Trey Anastasio Band’s performance on 5/5/17 at the Egyptian Room at Old National Centre in Indianapolis, IN, after a two year gap–and the live debut of “Every Story Ends In Stone”, a song that had not been played since 2003.Set two opened with “Burlap Sack and Pumps” from The Horseshoe Curve album, and featured TAB’s “Simple Twist Up Dave” and “Alive Again”, marking the another first for the Trey Anastasio Trio. The tour debut of  “Twist”–which had never been given any Trey band treatment outside of Phish–appeared in the second song slot, with versions of Phish’s “Miss You”, “Farmhouse”, and “Julius” also on deck.For the encore, Trey Anastasio Band trumpeter/vocalist Jennifer Hartswick emerged for Phish’s “Waste”, followed by the tour debuts of “Mozambique” and “Clint Eastwood” by the Gorillaz.Trey Anastasio Trio tour continues tomorrow as the band concludes their three-night run at the Civic Theatre.
