Hooray for the 'twenty minuters'!
Sorry, this kind of PR puff style does us no good, just tell the story without the 'Boy's own' angle please
Ginger's bought it! Bugger, we'll just have to burn the Mess piano now.
Look at me! Look at me!

Bloody Crab PR machine at it again.
I've read the story.

To summarise:

An RAF Tornado, flying at 40,000 feet, provided a black and white photo that 3X then used to kick some Taliban ass.

NB: The RAF crew had landed before the 3X bods had even got up and brushed their teeth prior to the attack.

Ha bloody ha, Tornadoes are notorious for not being able to climb above xx,xxx feet on a good day (which is why the F3 was so shit as an AD airframe) Good recci platform though
So the RAF are the supporting act for Omid?
