RAF Tornado Flypast at HQ

By Holly Price - 28th February 2019

RAF Tornado Flypast

At 3:30pm today our staff at HQ were treated to an impromptu break to admire the flypast of the retiring RAF Tornado jet. One of a series of flypasts held across the country in commemoration of the 40 years of service, it was a stunning show featuring nine of the jets encircling the countryside. There were some reservations about the overcast skies, but this was soon dismissed by a little bit of sun breaking through the clouds just in time for the show.

The Tornado has been in service since 1979 and was first used in combat during the first Gulf War, with a striking, iconic outline that can be easily recognized. This historic moment was a pleasure to behold, with both our office and factory staff keen to be a part of the event and watching in awe. Both Sarah and Francesca on our marketing team were quick enough to snap some photographs of the special moment as well as a few video clips.  

Luckily, our headquarters are located within close proximity to RAF Marham, and so we are often treated to various different aircrafts flying overhead!
