The Panavia Tornado was a joint effort between the UK, West Germany and Italy to produce a two-seat, dual-engine aircraft with variable-sweep wings. The Tornado took its maiden flight on August 14, 1974 with the first aircraft being delivered to the German Air Force on July 27, 1979. There are three main variants of the Tornado, the IDS (interdictor/strike), ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance) and ADV (air defense variant) interceptor. By the end of production in 1998 there had been 992 aircraft of all versions built of which 745 were IDS variants.

The JaBoG 31 “Boelcke” began to relocate from Buchel AB to Norvenich AB in January 1958 and was fully functional by mid June. In January 1959 JaBoG 31 became the first German Air Force wing to join NATO. In 1961 the wing received the name “Boelcke” in honor of the WWI German fighter pilot Oswald Boelcke. In 1979 JaBoG 31 was the first unit to equip with the Panavia Tornado IDS. Tornado 43+25 completed its maiden flight on September 4, 1981 and was accepted by the Luftwaffe on October 21, 1981.
