Today’s defence related news includes coverage of the three Tornado fighter jets.
The Daily Star, The Times, Daily Record and Daily Telegraph all report on the three jets that have been given a specially painted livery to commemorate four decades of service. The aircraft is due to be taken out of service at the end of March this year. One jet is painted in a camouflage pattern, a second in the livery of 31 Squadron and the third representing Nine Squadron, who were the first to operate the jet. The Tornado will be retiring this March after over 36 years of service in the RAF.
