Spain clears refuelling stops for Gib-bound Chinooks carrying aid

The Chinooks that delivered humanitarian aid supplies for HMS Ocean refuelled in San Sebastian and Seville before flying to Gibraltar.
The pit stops were unusual because Spain normally blocks military flights from its territory and airspace if they are bound to Gibraltar or flying from the Rock.
The humanitarian nature of the deployment however meant clearance was granted on this occasion.
