Looking for information on a truly ugly PURPLE & BLACK PANAVIA TORNADO.
I lecture on aviation history and carry several ACCURATE (I hope) models along to illustrate my lectures. Recently I added ones that were crude enough for the youngsters who refuse to consider "DON'T TOUCH !!" In a package of these was a PANAVIA TORNADO in really ugly Purple and Black -- Purple aft, black forward, wings scalloped between them with a thin gold stripe between the purple and the black. I could not believe that any self-respecting pilot would fly such a monstorsity and resolved to spray paint it. A colleague suggested I search for such a paint job just in case it was a "one off" special for some celebration. It had a German flag on each engine inlet.
I've covered most of the German Tornados on Airliners.net and haven't found it yet.
Anyone know whether or not this one is "for real" ??? Any information appreciated.
