Have this print I scanned and cannot recognise the venue or when it was taken. Definite code of 36-12 which I have as either MM7231 or could be MM7210. Think it was taken late 90's early 2000's and have scoured my log books to no avail. Could anyone come up with a solution ? Looks to be a Turkish F4 behind as a clue.

This is ZE340 which was on strength with 56(R) Sqn, It was painted in Italian marks when training the Italian crews and used for press photos etc. I know it did several shows in this guise including a RIAT but I cant remember which year. The real Italian Tornado's carried the MM serial on the fin.

That background looks like Mildenhall to me and sure enough Scramble has her listed for Airfete 96 along with a Turkish F-4.

The Turkish F-4E in static was 77-0278/1-278, and on the right I think that's VC-10 K.4 ZD230/K.

Cheers, ZF.

Thanks all for your replies, yes have now found ZE340 in my log book for Air Fete 96, was looking for an Italian serial hence the mystery. Knew I could rely on you.
