Re: Tornado GR4 Fleet

Seen a shot of MacRobert's Reply, ZD741, through Tebay (M6) today on FB. Not heard of this airframe for a while. Does anyone have further details of where it's operating from?

Axe F-35,purchase P-8 and provide more employment by installing cat/trap on one of the carriers. Then with the loose change buy some Hornets. :whistle: Looks like the F-35 i...

Rockin' RIAT (Saturday)

Only got round to sorting a few shots out due to feeling pretty knackered after yesterday! I'll add more this week.
