If true, then what you said, hope they managed a safe MB let down.

What reports?

If it is true, best wishes to the crew - who will be the first ejectees to be picked up by the Lossie SAR crew in 15 years.

Ok, I can't see anything, but that could be my lack of IT skills.

Hope crew are ok.

It seems that the aircraft is sat on it's wheels on the grass beside the runway, so not a 'crash' as such.
Whatever reason the crew had for ejecting, the important thing is they are safe and well.

Does anyone know if the crash sufficiently bad so as to scrap the aircraft ?

How many Tornado's do we actually have left given we have no ability to replace them ?

The crew are safe and well as has been stated so its not inconsiderate.

My point is that once they are fully recovered, are they able to go back to duties or is it another wing down for good ?
