As we fast approach the Centenary year of the Royal Air Force in 2018, we can expect this significant occasion to attract plenty of media attention and form the basis of a spectacular Airshow year. In advance of these commemorations, a number of individual RAF Squadrons have already marked their Centenary years and delighted aviation enthusiasts by presenting one of their aircraft in a special commemorative scheme. Without doubt, one of the most attractive schemes seen so far is the one applied to Panavia Tornado GR.4 ZA461 of No.15(R) Squadron, based at Lossiemouth in Northern Scotland and with the impending drawdown of the remaining Tornado force looming, this aircraft has become something of a talismanic airframe for the ‘Mighty Fin’. Formed at Farnborough as a training unit in March 1915, the unit had transferred to the Western Front flying reconnaissance missions in the BE2c by the end of the year. Serving through both world wars, the Squadron has operated such aircraft as the Fairey Battle, Avro Lancaster and Blackburn Buccaneer, during its service history, but are currently one of only four Squadrons still equipped with the Tornado GR.4.
