Very sad, I've always been a massive fan of the Tornado, a truly awesome aircraft and miss seeing them at our annual Eastbourne 'Airbourne' show every year. They used to do a very low level pass at sea level on full afterburner with wings swept back then pitch straight up at the end of the run, the noise was like Armageddon and truly spinetingling - the ground used to shake! What a plane!

Very sad indeed! Crying Sad
