The third and last of the Royal Air Force’s specially marked Tornado GR4s took to the air yesterday for an air-to-air photo sortie alongside the other two jets to have received special markings to mark the type’s retirement from service on March 31.
The latest aircraft to be prepared by the Marham Serco Surface Finishing, Tornado GR4 ZG752 wears the wraparound grey/green scheme in which the Tornado GR1 entered RAF service back in 1982. The same jet previously wore ‘RAF100’ titles to mark the service’s centenary last year.
