The Tornado seems to be missing the rear part of its fuel tank.

Theres a video on YouTube showing that as it turns onto the downwind leg the rear of the tank just disintegrates.

See PPRuNe thread. Looks like the port SPS door came off and struck the tank? Apparently it has happened before?

Nice pics - always nice to see all 11 Reds in formation :up:
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

some nice shots here however some of them really do not work for me and one or two of them are much to tightly cropped just my opinion of course but others are really nice
