Sad to see ZG779 go, seen here many tines at low level the past couple of years. Even videoed her flying over the Red Lion in Dinas Mawddwy back in May.

We're down to 41 serviceable jets now - and by serviceable I mean not at RTP - this time next year we will only have a couple of months left of Tornado GR4 Ops so expect the number of jets going to RTP to increase

The split should be as follows

GR4 - 33 (Plus ZA469/ 029 which was last noted in Oct 16 being towed around Marham as a shell)
GR4A - 2
GR4T - 6

With Air Cdre Stringer indicating the RAF could start the draw down of anti Daesh ops in the next 4 months and the next squadron slated to disband in March / April, sadly the Tornados are going to be rare beast shortly
RAF Tornados left in service = 40 :( 475 ish days left in service
GR4 =32, GR4A =2, GR4(T) =6

Looking forward to my last trip to Marham early next year but will be very sad. The last of the Classics :-(
