I worked on 5 sqn F3s Tornado for 6 years.
The aircraft was considered as a "Posers" aircraft by all because it looked so good especially when visiting other units. It was especially good at running away because of its amazing acceleration. On the same par as the F111..
It's had problems staying up at high levels and dog fighting was a no...no normally.
I had a back seat trip which was a bit of an anti climax because the ride was so smooth even when super sonic but it is still my favourite aircraft to work on.
I would love to see a nice painting. I have added one of mine from a few years ago in gouache.
