Panavia Tornado GR.Mk 4   3.25"   2.75"

Entering service back in 1980 with the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment (TTTE), the last of these fighter-bombers were retired by the RAF in spring of 2019. Three aircraft from IX and 31 Squadrons performed a three-day farewell tour throughout the United Kingdom. This second aircraft from No 31 Squadron was repainted with the two-tone camouflage scheme which was applied to the Tornados in the 1980s when they were first delivered. Small badges of all units that operated the Tornado in the past 40 years adorn the spine of the aircraft.

Panavia Tornado GR.Mk 4

Designed in collaboration with Britain, West Germany and Italy, the Tornado was first flown on August 14th, 1974 and is thought by many to be the most important military aircraft in Western European history. Nicknamed "The Flying Fin" because of its large tail fin, the Tornado has a variable wing sweep design and is capable of taking off and landing on short airstrips. It is equipped with terrain-following radar, which allows for hands-off, low-level flight in any weather. There are three primary versions: an electronic combat/reconnaissance version, an interceptor and a highly versatile strike fighter-bomber capable of carrying almost all of NATO's air-launched weapons.
