Three Tornado aircraft have been flying in formation across the UK as they stage a series of farewell flypasts.

The warplane, now based at RAF Marham in Norfolk, is being retired after 40 years of service.

The ceremonial flypasts have been taking across across the country over three days with crowds turning out to see the planes in the skies over military bases across Britain.

On Wednesday the planes flew over Honington in Suffolk, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford along with Bedford and Cranfield in Bedfordshire.
