I can probably add a few to this thread. I'll have to have a dig through my hard drive though!

Here's ZA469 departing Oman in 2008. There is a shot that follows this where the pilot (who will remain nameless!) buzzed our home from home rather low in full reheat, there was much panic in the mess apparently with admimners hitting the deck and spilling brews everywhere.....

Am I right in thinking the serials in red on the list at the start of this thread are the ones that have been covered? Working on that prinicple, here's ZA452/GK 20 sqn seen at IAT 91:

Image
ZA452 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

and ZA463/Q of 15 sqn in Op Granby colours with Garfield nose art at Leuchars BoB day 1991:

Image
ZA463 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

and ZD739/AC of 9 sqn taxying out at Leuchars in Feb 92 following a lunch stop at the Fast Jet Turn-round Facility which handled daily visits from Germany based Tornados and Harriers:

Image
ZD739 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

and ZG706/O of SAOEU at ATI 92 Boscombe Down:

and ZG727/L of 13 sqn again at ATI 92:

Image
ZG727 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

and ZG709/I 13 sqn at IAT 93:

If I have misunderstood the red/black text thing, apologies for duplications! :-)

Quick trawl through the Flickr account found a few more new ones, I think:

ZA401/XIII in 13 sqn special marks at RIAT 2005:

Image
ZA401 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

ZD895/TI on the flightline at Fairford, also 2005:

ZE116/DG 31 sqn GR.1 at Fairford 1993:

ZE116 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

ZG709/I 13 sqn at Fairford 1993 in good ol proper camo:

Image
ZG709 by Al Henderson, on Flickr

ZG727/L again 13 sqn ATI92 flightline (with desert pink droptanks). 13 sqn seemed to be very common at airshows in the early 90s, maybe showing off their new toys?

That's all on my Flickr account at the moment. Great thread, though, lets appreciate the Tonka before they're all gone again!
