Tarnation, I'm only six miles from the National Memorial Arboretum, but I've only just seen this.

I work around 5 miles from RAF Linton on Ouse & contrived to have "something to do" outside at the appointed hour - saw & heard nothing ! An item on the local TV news this evening covered the 3 aircraft flypast at Linton, so I know they were there - just didn't approach or depart from my direction, unfortunately.

Sometimes it’s fortunate to live under RAF Benson approach path, 3 Tornados on the flypast just went over, 2 mins early though.

They are pretty nippy, takes me 2 hours to get to Bristol and I don’t go via St Athan and Pembrey.

I was was at Keysoe, about 1k east of the end of RAE Bedford's runway and saw them about 13:20. Fumbled my attempt to take video and stills but pleased I got to wave them off. Farewell Tornado.

They must have skirted around the edges of Bedfordshire on the way up from Duxford. As far as Look East was concerned they went from Duxford to High Wycombe direct.

They came from the direction of St Neots, flew down the RAE Bedford car park, sorry runway, then turned 90 degrees left heading for Cranfield.
