As compared to other Olympic competitions, the London Olympics has been planned in a sophisticated way. There will be a tight security for the games as it has been the concern of people that terrorist are now all over. Through the BBC, there were speculations as early as may as to how security will be managed in the London Olympics. Royal Navy has been deployed to Greenwich. This way, they will ensure that the HMS Ocean is safe to travel for anyone interested in watching the games. RAF typhoon fast jets have also been deployed in west London. They are piloted by highly trained personnel who will ensure that the sky is conducive for the games. In RAF Northolt, there will be helicopter armed with snipers. No matter where the terrorist is, a killer bullet will always be eying him/her. Jets and helicopters will be of considerable help because they are able to cover vast areas in an extremely short time as compared to other military groups. As the games continue, fast jets will fly over the widely expanded London, eyeing every activity taking place and reporting suspicious ones. As a matter of fact, the London sky will always be on close surveillance 24/7.  In general, there will be more than 13,000 military personnel, operating every day in the London Olympics. There is an operational plan the military will operate on to ensure that every part of London is well covered. There will also be security personnel’s at the stadiums. Not all will be armed or be in official police uniform. They will intermingle with fun, and it will be difficult to identify them.
