I was out today visiting a client situated on one of these out of the way small industrial parks and look what I found in the car park:eek:
Apparantly there is a chap who sells bits of it for the second hand market from the next door unit, I was told that the wings are 'round the back'! As ever I had my trusty 770SW in my top pocket.

Anyway I am struggling to ID it, so thought I would enlist your help my first thoughts were 'Jaguar' but I really am a bit out of touch on military aircraft, much better at civillian aircraft ID.

Any thoughts?:)

Takes me back to my earliest days at work. One of the first aircraft types I worked on as an apprentice back at the Strand road factory in Preston Lancs. As I started on the shop floor the project was coming to a close as production was ramping up for the Tornado aircraft.

Hi Folks, consulted my oracle, AKA Chris round the corner, and the following reply just turned up.

Sorry when I was in the RAF aeroplanes still had propellers. I went to Singapore on a Hermes, it took 4 days:o
