Named Tornado: To the Last, the cool video in this post is a powerful piece of music composed by Royal Air Force (RAF) Music Services, released to celebrate almost 40 years of service by the Tornado jet – which has come to an end today.

First entering service in 1979, the Tornado has been used in operations across the world, most recently bombarding Daesh to push the terrorist group back through Syria and Iraq.

The weapons capabilities of the retired Tornados are now being delivered by RAF Typhoon jets, which will continue to take a leading role in the Coalition’s mission against Daesh. Under ‘Project Centurion’, worth £425million over the past three years, the Typhoon can now also launch the world-leading Meteor air-to-air missile, the Stormshadow deep strike cruise missile and the precision attack missile Brimstone.

Before her retirement today, the Tornado has only beeen used for training purposes over the UK in the intervening period.
