After visiting Bruntingthorpe on a Cold War Jets Open Day, the SIG is pleased to present a walk around of ZA326, a truly unique and very important airframe.
It was fantastic to meet everyone involved with The Panavia Tornado Preservation Group and I'd like to thank them for the chat and warm welcome. If any SIG members or website visitors are keen to support the preservation of ZA326 please do visit their website and donate a penny or two.
The aircraft is essentially ready for a taxi run, but there are two 'small' components missing. If anyone happens to have some Turbo Union RB199's........
I look forward to following ZA326's progress.
For additional images, there are many, many interesting pictures on their Flickr photo stream
Regular visitors to the site will be familiar with the build. For those that aren't, there are no decals on this model. A truly amazing build.
