Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s have arrived back in the UK having completed almost 40 years serving the UK on military operations across the world. The iconic RAF jets returned home to RAF Marham, Norfolk, from overseas operations for the last time on February 5.

First entering service in 1979, the fast jets have been used in operations across the world, most recently over Syria and Iraq. Families and friends of the present-day squadron members were on hand to welcome them back to Marham.  The Tornado force is expected to officially stand down at the end of March.
