Tornado Boys Will Be Boys

Tornado crews know how to make a nuisance of themselves, even when they're not flying...

A bloke I once worked with, who was an RAF groundie, said the CO of a particular Tornado squadron took a suitcase full of cash with him every time they deployed to Red Flag. The money was needed to bail Tornado crews out of jail, who'd ended up there after very big nights out on the town. It was, apparently, how they coped with the stress of low flying.
