RAF Tornado incident

It's not an 'incident' - there is nothing contrived about two fast jets happening to share the same air-space in the fog. It's a tragic accident.

Very speculative! There is always hope. They could have banged out?
Possibly but the PLB's would have gone off (the's a link fitted between the cockpit & the seat that automatically sets off the PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) fitted to the seat) on ejection.
The aircrew would also be wearing immersion suits & carry individual radios & strobe lights & they sit on a box that is connected to them by lanyards,that contains a one man dinghy & other survival aids.The life jackets that they wear have a collar that automatically inflates on contact with water.
