During previous campaigns from WW2 onwards the RAF marked up on its aircraft the number of missions each aircraft had completed.
It got me wondering which of the Tornado fleet has from Gulf War 1 to present has completed most missions? - I dont suppose the answer is known

Steven -

Not sure if it's of any help - or if this is the correct place to note it - but I was taking photos at Lossie yesterday and noticed both ZD849/110 and ZA447/019 in action. They were out early in the morning and returned before midday, then they were out again with ZA602 for 90 minutes or so, returning mid-afternoon. Hope it helps!
