A C-130J military transport aircraft of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) made a short and unusual stopover in Benghazi, before departing for Cyprus, Italian Nova news agency said.

“The Twitter account specializing in tracking aircraft and ships Air_Intel recorded the departure of flight RRR5995 from Benina airport in Benghazi, towards the Cypriot air base Raf Akrotiri, underlining that British military flights to Libya usually go to Tripoli or Misrata, and not to Benghazi”, the agency added.
