People walk amid candles lit at Praca do Comercio in Lisbon

People walk amid candles lit at Praca do Comercio at Lison December 17, 2011. Fifty thousand candles were lit in Praca do Comercio, Lisbon's downtown square, as part of an attempt by non-governmental organization Terra dos Sonhos (Land of Dreams) to achieve a Guinness World Record. The candles were sold at 1 euro each ($1.30) to raise funds for realizing the dreams of children suffering from long and terminal illnesses.

Tornado GR4 Aircraft Featured 17 Dec 2011 Image

Tornado GR4 Aircraft

A Tornado GR4 aircraft at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan is pictured at night.
Entitled The Beast of Kandahar, this image was the winner of Category I Best Amateur Military sponsored by Jessops in the RAF Photography competition 2012.
The Tornado GR4 is a variable geometry, two-seat, day or night, all-weather attack aircraft capable of delivering a wide variety of weapons.
Powered by two Rolls-Royce RB 199 Mk 103 turbofan engines, the GR4 is capable of low-level supersonic flight and can sustain a high subsonic cruise speed.
The aircraft can fly automatically at low level using Terrain Following Radar (TFR) when poor weather prevents visual flight. The aircraft is also equipped with Forward Looking InfraRed (FLIR) and is Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible. This gives it a relatively unique all weather night capability as well as making it an impressive platform for mounting passive night electro-optical operations.
For navigation purposes, the Tornado is equipped with an integrated Global Positioning Inertial Navigation System (GPINS). The GR4 also has a Ground Mapping Radar (GMR) to identify fix-points and update navigation systems as well as providing an air to air search facility.
The GR4 is also equipped with a Laser Ranger and Marked Target Seeker (LRMTS) that can be used to locate targets designated on the ground or can provide accurate range information to ground targets
