Tornado GR4

 

Saturday evening was the Spring Nightshoot at the Yorkshire Air Museum. One of the floodlit aircraft was the Panavia Tornado GR4 Fighter/Bomber test aircraft, used to trial many feautures of the plane including air-to-air refuelling, weapons handling and supersonic flight. Built in 1978 as a pre-production protoype it was later converted to the GR4 configuration and finally retired in 2005.
