The model of a Tornado GR4 in II(AC) Sqn markings was given to the base’s museum by defence contractor UTC Aerospace.

The model is the latest acquisition to the heritage centre’s collection, which spans the entire history of the station from its First World War origins, to the present day.

“It is indeed an honour to receive this model from UTC,” said curator, Warrant Officer Steve Roberts. “It is indicative of the closeness of the special relationship we have with our partner companies, when we are approached with such excellent additions to our collection.”

The item was sent from the UTC HQ and training facility in Westford Ma USA, specifically for the Heritage display.

The heritage centre, which is near the main entrance to the base, will be open to the general public from 10am - 4pm on Saturday.
