No tanking - straight into Leeming with a bit of General handling and a high speed run up the East Coast

Looking at photos online, they removed the refueling probe before it's last flight, going to be an odd looking GR4 flying about :lol: Was the probe removed at families day Slacky?
RAF Tornados left in service = 28 :( 312 ish days left in service
GR4 =25, GR4(T) =3
