News: US Air Force Begins Supply Missions

3rd November 1988: The US Air Force began missions to supply its bases in the United Kingdom. C-141 Starlifters from bases in Iceland and the United States flew a series of airlifts to a number of the isolated bases. Cranwell warned the US to "respect British airspace or face the consequences". France and the Soviet Union tabled an emergency motion at the UN Security Council but this is veto'd by the US.
