The Tornado took its maiden flight on August 14, 1974 with the first aircraft being delivered to the German Air Force on July 27, 1979. There are three main variants of the Tornado, the IDS (interdictor/strike), ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance) and ADV (air defense variant) interceptor.

The 2011 UN Security Council Resolution 1973 was designed to protect Libyan citizens during the civil war that broke out to replace Muammar Gaddafi as president. In response NATO allies began to enforce a no-fly zone designated Operation Unified Protector.
Normally the Royal Saudi Air Force remains within their own territory but because of their relationship with the UK and the RAF they decided to fly there and do combined exercises with the Brits. Exposure to other forceĂs tactics and logistics can prove to be of great benefit to the Saudis. ˘Exercise Saudi Sword 2007÷ took place at RAF Lossiemouth between August 27 ű September 7. Eight Tornados from Dahran AB arrived for the exercise that was hosted by RAF No. 617 Squadron. One of the Tornados was 703/ZE114.
