There are plenty of private companies around the world that would be easy enough to hire to deliver cargo. Just because the aircraft were British doesn't necessarily mean government.

I'm not being funny but I doubt that, after the budget cuts inflicted by this poxy tory government, the RAF would be able or willing to provide two Hercules to fly to Iraq and drop supplies to isis.

This is all BS and nonsense, and here's why...
1. Why would a government arming both sides use identifiable planes to do it?
2. If a government wanted to arm both sides, they would not be using military routes, they would be using contractors they could then distance themselves from.
3. Arming both sides might be considered "profitable" for a corporation, but it would be a massive risk to any government and not worth that potential profit - profit that the government (and the RAF) would not see.
4. Most of those in the RAF would have called the Guardian by now if this was actually happening.
I'm sure there are another 100 reasons why this is obviously BS, but I have a feeling those who want to see a massive conspiracy will see one anyway, regardless of the complete lack of evidence and the complete rejection of common sense.

My question was sincere. I'm not a pilot. I know nothing of how this would be done.
How exactly would they determine that the payload was meant for X and not for Y ?
