CAMBS: Last flight of the Tornado squadron

LAST FLIGHT: Six RAF Tornadoes from RAF Marham could be seen in the skies above Huntingdonshire on Friday (May 6) as a squadron completed its last flight before being grounded.

This picture of the Tornado squadron was taken as the planes passed over RAF Wyton by Geoff Soden.

The XIII squadron, based at RAF Marham in Norfolk, was making a final fly-past before being disbanded on June 1 because of government cuts.

Plans from Marham are currently being used in the conflict on Libya, but the future of the base itself is in doubt. A decision on its future is due to be made by July 19.
