With the Tornado F3 being treated like a guilty secret at the Leuchars show, we made it our mission to seek some out. Tucked up in the Ark Royal hanger were these four, all awaiting a final trip to Leeming.

Hi Alan,

Some nice shots there; were you on the enthusiast package? We were also allowed in the hanger and to photograph these beasts very early on Saturday.

We just asked nicely and fortunately one of the guys was ex-43 sqn and appreciated the interest. I think they welcomed the break from their task and we had a nice chat about planes, life and the Falklands.

There is a mention of Leeming for these aircraft.
Forgive my ignorance, but what makes you think Leeming will be there destination? The 25 Sqn Tonka will be welcomed since that was the squadrons final resting place.

No need to answer the above since i found this site regarding Tornado RTP

What makes you think it won't? Who is going to welcome it back? They'll all go through RTP in the end, apart from a very small number destined for museums.
