RAF Tornado · 1974 onwards (all marks and models) — Owners' Workshop Manual

by Ian Black

An insight into operating, flying and maintaining the air defence and strike versions of the swing wing jet

Since 1986 the multi-role swing-wing Panavia PA-200 Tornado has been the cornerstone of the RAF's jet fighter and bomber forces, designed to intercept Cold War Soviet bombers and drop conventional and nuclear weapons on invading Warsaw Pact forces. RAF Tornados have seen action in both Gulf Wars, over Kosovo, and most recently over Afghanistan and Libya. Former RAF Tornado ADV pilot and air-to-air photographer Ian Black gives an "insider" insight into operating, flying and maintaining the air defence and strike versions of the swing-wing jet.
