Typical parochial American reporting. Who are the "British" Royal air force
?

Only an American newspapaer would use the British Broadcating Corp and very
probably use the abbreviation CNN for a lesser known, decades junior news
organisation

Hi Doug

I did have a chuckle at the "BRAF" part. The Americans have always
been that way with regards our armed forces. I also laughed it off
when working with them as it was always the "British Navy" not the
"Royal Navy" but then again we did at one port of call in the USA
manage to stick up 100s (if not 1000s) of ROYAL NAVY stickers all
round the US Naval Base. Nothing was safe at all. Someone did ask the
crews to stop it but that fell on deaf ears and just made it worse.

Oh the joys, then again someone did come up with a points scoring
table for where the stickers ended up and I must admit. I think by the
time we left the USA knew who the Royal Navy were, thats for sure.

As for the BBC, well you do see it mentioned in other places as well.
