Was out shopping with the wife today and there was a tornado landed at Manston,went over there but was too dark to get the reg so does anyone know which one it was please. If it helps the tail had a biplane painted on it?, many thanks,Colin.

Hi Colin

Unless there's more than one of them, it's GR4A ZA398 - the BE2 biplane is commemorating the centenary of 11 sqn's first deployment (from Farnborough to Montrose).

Many thanks for that Rod,don't know what it was doing there but it was on its own. It parked over near the cargo centre and as I said it was too dark to get the reg.thanks Rod.

Morning Rod, went over to Manston yesterday to have some lunch at the little cafe at the Spitfire museum and the Tornado was still there. I asked at the museum if they had any idea what it was doing there and they told me it had a bird strike over the channel and had to an emergency landing,he was escorted by another by another Tornado and after he had come to a halt the escort did a very low pass over the runway. Regards Colin.
