There was only ever one Tornado in Ripple colours and that was GR.1P ZA326. If that news is true then it's great that it has been saved.

Just a few of the Rasprberry Ripples.

ZA326 GR1 Tornado

Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer in its ETPS scheme - it never wore the Rasperry ripple scheme that it currently is painted in (RAF Greenham Common)

Image
Comet XV814 at Abingdon

Image
Sea King XV370 of the ETPS. This is a SH-3D and was the development aircraft used for the Westland Sea King.

The ripple scheme was based on the Training Command scheme of Red/White and grey as worn by the early Hawks and JPs, and all other training types such as Andover, Varsity, Jetstream and so on from the 1970s onwards. The ripple scheme differed in that a blue underside was always used forming a red cheatline, hence the "ripple" like the ice-cream. Military humour at work.

A Saab Gripen had its tail fin painted navy blue adorned with silver ETPS lettering, but the remainder of the airframe was air defence grey rather than rippled.

Nice to see XX475. She's now at Northbrook College at Shoreham airport and it's one of the aircraft that I learnt my trade on

Such an awesome thread.

The VAAC Harrier came back into the limelight this week, and is on static at the Cosford airshow this year :love:

I'm saving most of my slightly less-crappy shots for the write-up, but I had to post one. Also, note a certain UKARian looking all professional and businesslike. So airshow. Much organise. Very suit. Wow.

And the "new Raspberry Ripple" corporate scheme used by QinetiQ... I suppose it's better than grey!

Sadly due to bathroom circumstances I don't have any of the Hawk from Northolt to share yet - but I'm sure others do! What a rare treat that was!
