These two planes look like they will be play mates for a long time, will till the Tornado GR4 is replaces some time around 2012.

But god it looks good.

Happy new year everyone I'm off for a beer :-)

You should look at the piccys on the RAF website with the Tornado carrying shadow storms

So here it is!

It's a great and great looking plane, but I cannot believe you are going on about the "color scheme". The darn thing is grey from tip to burner.
They need to paint it in the "Tiger" color scheme.

So what? Its a particularly attractive shade of grey and one you don't normally see on RAF Tornadoes.

I love the GR4, I hope to have the privilage of been able to work with the GR4 engineers shortly and their aircraft, but you have to admire its beauty, it is a beast not to be messed with, and quite frankly, the GR4 and Typhoon at the moment must be the best aircraft we have, not excluding the Jaguar of course for now and for years to come, look at the aircraft and RAF roundel with pride people...

A picture of a Jaguar, thought I would let you look at.....

Lovely pictures; cute planes.

So, how many passengers can they carry and what kind of mileage do they get?

Do they promote the common good, or do they create harm?

What's the purpose in creating harm?

How much harm does this regime intend to create?

Who will be the objects of the harm this regime creates with these cute planes they like to make toy models of?

Who profits off these planes? How many people are employed for building them?

Is the good they do, primarily to beef up the US Economy; or is there a larger "Good" in their sights?

I'm waiting for answers. And I copied off the photos for my son--who's an airplane freak.

I have always wondered what the Japanese and German fighter pilots thought when going up against the American fighters in World War II. Some pilots had their planes painted with big mouths on the front, like a shark, then big bomber planes had huge pictures of naked women on them; could you imagine being a German pilot, and taking a dive at a big bomber or something that is shooting at you, and you're shooting at it, and as you come in close to it, you see a big naked woman on the side? And then a plane with a big shark mouth comes up behind you to shoot.......they must've though they were against a flying circus or something.

Well, that would certainly be a switch!

Seriously though, I bet some of the German pilots as they saw the nose art on some of those planes were probably like, "Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me...."

Mostly B-17s, many squadrons chose to do the nose art with babes
