RAF Tornado GR4 painted in the Gulf War desert pink paint scheme

I know that some will be hopeful that this aircraft will be venturing into the "Loop" in Wales today. The weather here near Heathrow is crystal clear sunshine, I hope it is in Wales too.

Specially painted to commemorate those involved in the Gulf War, already twenty-five years ago.

Nice - just needs some muck and grime on it......

it was overcast and snowing !!
I don't know if this will be able to do "The Loop" as there's restrictions on the Colour schemes apparently ..
But I had heard the Red Arrows were going to Transit through on their way to Valley on the Tuesday but they cancelled owing to Weather at Scampton
