As one of the world’s most capable low-level strike aircraft, able to operate at day or night and in all weather conditions, it is sobering to think that the RAF began operating the Panavia Tornado over 35 years ago and it is now very much in the twilight of its service career. Seeing plenty of action during this time, the Tornado has been at the forefront of the RAFs offensive capability, with successive upgrades and improvements allowing the aircraft to deliver the latest precision munitions effectively and gather vital battlefield reconnaissance information.

Entering service back in 1980 with the Tri-National Tornado Training Establishment (TTTE) formed by the United Kingdom, Italy and Germany, the last of these fighter-bombers were retired by the RAF in spring of 2019. Three aircraft from IX and 31 Squadrons performed a three-day farewell tour throughout the United Kingdom in February. No IX Squadron was the first combat unit to receive the “Tonka” in 1982. ZG775 sports a special farewell colour scheme on the stabiliser, including the unit’s famous green bat.
