Nine Tornado jets will fly in formation around RAF Marham tomorrow (Thursday 28 February) to mark the aircraft's retirement.

The Tornado has been in service since 1979 and was first used in combat during the first Gulf War.

A series of flypasts have been held around the country to mark the Tornado's 40 years of service in the RAF.

Wing Commander James Heeps has described tomorrow's planned display at RAF Marham.

If they need to use the runway in the opposite direction this route will be reversed.
