Tornado in Lincolnshire's fighter town

Post by Matt 5b » Sun Oct 17, 2021 9:50 am

Awfully grey skies on Thursday morning but great to see, and hear, a Tornado again at RAF Coningsby. A week long deployment by the Italian Airforce for training on the bombing range at Donna Nook. After a couple of days on base the spare jet, Tornado IDS M.M. 7023 6-63 OF THE 6 Stormo, departed home before lunchtime, callsign 'IAM0101'.
