After TSR-2, the Birth of Tornado

11 September 2017

Prestwick Airport


We welcome back Jock Heron. This time his talk will consider the dilemma facing the RAF after the cancellation of TSR2, the attempt to collaborate with France on the abortive Anglo French Variable Geometry project and the urgent need to acquire a suitable aircraft to fulfil the low level, all weather strike attack role. Jock will describe the political manoeuvring and the pressure on the Royal Air Force to adjust the operational requirement to accommodate the needs of other Nations as the design was agreed with the Panavia partners.
