German Tornado IDS

A German Air Force Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter/bomber from AG51 'Immelman' (Aufklarungsgeschwader 51 or Reconnaissance Wing 51), based at Schleswig, will be among a number of Luftwaffe aircraft on static display at the Air Tattoo.

In 2006, to support coalition operations across Afghanistan, Germany deployed Tornado reconnaissance aircraft from AG51 to Mazar-i-Sharif, Northern Afghanistan.
