    Didn't we lose one last month as well?
  4. Saves scrapping them I s'pose
  5. They are starting to be a bit careless and lossing things
  6. 2 in 2 months the RAF realy are downsizing the tornado fleet on the quite,
    but didnt some old aviator once say any landing you walk away from is a good one espechially for these two post ejection :)
  7. I should say so my brother reversed into one and broke the engine during his time in the RAF, how he laughed on his way to Colchester.

    Maybe it's a cunning plan to crash all of them so HMG has to stump up for the upgrade of the Tranche 1 Tiffies?
