Tornado F-3 squadron markings

Post by henkderidder »

Looking through my slides and seeing the ones of the F-3's, I realise that now they are gone I really miss these beautiful colourful powerful planes. Although I've never visit the home bases Leeming, Leuchars, and Conningsby, during the time the F-3's rules the skies, Ive seen a lot of them on the continent.
Here's a selection of squadron makings through the years.

Ehhhhmmm, it was about F.3s. These are GR.1s
Good shots Henk. Same goes for con-v's, but they belong in another topic IMHO.

Mooi werk trouwens, Henk! Ook Con-v's platen zijn interessant, maar horen m.i. in een apart topic thuis.
