Aviation fans are being given an opportunity to say goodbye to the RAF Tornado fighter jets in a three-day UK flyover before they are retired.

After almost 40 years serving the UK on military operations across the world, iconic RAF Tornado jets have returned home and will cease operations on Sunday 31st March.

But before then flying enthusiasts will get to see the majestic jet as it tours most of the country in a farewell flypast from its base at RAF Marham in Norfolk.

The tour will see the jet whizz past RAF bases as far north as RAF Tain in Scotland to as far south as MOD Boscombe Down in Wiltshire.

Weather permitting, local fans will get to see the Tornados will fly past RAF Shrivenham, the closest base to Swindon, which is roughly a 20 minute drive away.
