20170715 (34)_Panavia_Tornado_IDS

Under the Curtain..... as BAe's advertising used to say. For me the Italian Tornado IDS displayed by RSV was the cream of the Saturday show at RIAT. In weather that was curtains for the displays of the sexy stealthy fighters, the slab-sided Cold War veteran blasted into the murk and smashed round the dark sky with blazing afterburners and wings swinging from 25 to 67 degrees of sweep and back again. Last of the all-weather fighters indeed, and what a colour scheme!
