IT’S A PHRASE that we seem to be using all too often these days — end of an era. When it comes to the Royal Air Force Tornado GR it’s being used once again. In March, the RAF will retire its last Tornado GR4s after an incredible 37 years of front-line service. No IX (Bomber) Squadron will trade its last Tornados for Tranche 1 Typhoons, which will assume air defense and ‘red air’ aggressor duties at RAF Lossiemouth.
