The Skunk @ White Waltham Nightshoot

Post by theskunk »

My take on Threshold.aero's event at White Waltham Airfield 19th September 2020.

Nice. The Hurricane startup shot is great, but what a surprise to see that Tornado. I had no idea it had survived and was living at White Waltham. That had gone under my radar totally.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

Worth pointing out that it isn't the real deal! It's actually ZA355 (Tornado GR1) which was moved to White Waltham last year and was previously in standard 'Tornado Grey'. I believe the repaint into Gulf War markings was a lockdown project for the current owners at Shoot Aviation... and it does look marvelous! :star_struck: The real MiG-Eater (ZA447) was upgraded to GR4 standard and is now resident at RAF Cosford as an engineering instructional airframe.

Really? They've made a good job of it haven't they? It does actually look like a time-distressed treatment of the MiG-Eater scheme, as though it has been sat in a hangar for years. Memories of 1991!
