This shows the interception of a 100 Squadron Hawk ‘aggessor’ during the RAF Role Demonstration at the 2008 Valley Aviation Society charity photo-call. The Tornado has closed behind the Hawk and is slowing to position itself to attack whilst pulling a lot of ‘g’ and condensing the humid coastal air. Note the differential tailplane angles which control the roll axis. I don’t know which of the two participating Tornado F3s this was. All the demonstration aircraft recovered to Lyneham after the exercise.

Awesome shot! If TOP GUN was British, it would have looked like this.

That's a fantastic action shot. You don't see much ACM on this site. That Tonka is really working hard. Sounds like the Argentinean visitor hasn't got over 1982 though.
