Hi guys, as an ex scaley IÂ´m a bit confused about a report that was on the german radio this morning and thought that some of you guys (or even the odd blue job) could shed some light on the matter: In a report this morning they stated that 6 Tornados are deploying to Afghanistan in a recce role. So far no problems, not even for a scaley ! 10 Tornados will be taking off from their base in Schleswig-Holstein and flying the first leg to Sardinia. Once there, 2 aircraft will be dropped off before deploying on the second leg to UAE where a further 2 aircraft will be dropped off before the final leg to Afghanistan. Redundancy I can understand, but planning in a 66% redundancy seems somewhat high. My question: Is this normal, or is the GAF playing it safe ??
