Panavia Tornado GR.Mk 4 Diecast Model
RAF No.14 Sqn, ZG775, Libya, Operation Ellamy 2011
The Tornado GR4 is a two-seat RAF aircraft and is still one of the few aircraft in the world that is able to operate at low level, day or night and in poor weather. Having been in service with the RAF for more than thirty years it has undergone major upgrades and enhancements to keep the aircraft amongst the forefront of attack aircraft. The GR4 was deployed in various operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and played a major part in Operation Ellamy in the skies over Libya in 2011. The Operation was part of an international coalition aimed at enforcing a Libyan no-fly zone to prevent government forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi from carrying our air attacks on opposing forces. The coalitionâs operation was successful in that the no-fly zone was established with the Tornado proving itself once again to be a vital attack aircraft for the RAF.
