So I've cheated and picked 4 from my tour in Gibraltar 88-91.

What a stunning backdrop the Rock makes. Must have been sheer hell out there! But then again, suppose someone had to do it.

As with many others, I now find myself woefully short of Tornado pictures, considering how many I've seen over the years :( Still, here's a few from days gone by, I've avoided common airshow ones cos others will have much better ones that me from such events..

First up, Australian International Airshow at Avalon, nr Melbourne, Feb 2001. Large RAF contingent including couple of 15(R) sqn GR.1s. ZA452/TJ here seen taxying in presumably after a display as I doubt they arrived without wing tanks!

ImageLong Way From Home by Alistair Henderson, on Flickr

ZD739 of 9 sqn seen taxying for departure from Leuchars in Feb 92 following a lunch stop. The RAFG squadrons had to do low level training in the UK when the Germans decided they weren't so keen. Hence, Leuchars was set up as a turnaround facility to service RAFG Tornados and Harriers who had to make the journey over to the UK for low level flying training.

And finally, ZD715/CC of 17 sqn seen at the Leuchars B0B day in 1996:

Farewell old girl, you don't owe us anything!

Wonderful sights, even some from my old Sqns 20 and 17(F).
Rest well old friends, your duty was superbly done.

I do miss my time in the RAF, but every month it reminds me how great it was with a lovely big cheque
