40 years? Damn that makes me feel old!

Still remember my father talking about the kit that the Displays team at 'Ferruncle' (our pet name for Ferranti) were designing for the "MRCA". (Didn't even call it 'Tornado' back then).

Never knew that - thanks. Always thought using Fighting before Falcon was a bit unnecessary anyway.
I recall our Officer in the Air Training Corps filling us in on MRCA too!

Wasn't the 'fighting' there so it didn't get confused with the 'Millenium'?
