Tornados have visited Southend a couple of times recently. It goes without saying that both times I've missed them :(

Duxford was heaving ,i gave up and sat outside.The cars were parked everywhere.Who would have thought the old Tornado would have had such a following.

Certainly was - I got in at 10 and watched the place slowly fill up. Good couple of thousand in I reckon, great to see it so busy on a non-airshow day, especially as there was little else flying today.

We went to RAF Strike Command at High Wycombe, joining the hundreds there, wonderful to see so many out to see them.

I couldn't believe how busy Duxford was yesterday. The car park was full, with people parking inside the airfield fence and at about 1pm there was still queuing traffic on the A505, waiting to get in. Great to see.

The Tornados approached from the East, performed a single flypast and then banked in formation to fly North, around the back of the Land Warfare Hall and American Air Museum.
