Background story

For all flying wings in German Airforce "Luftwaffe" it has become good beloved tradition to paint one of their jets in a special scheme for even anniversaries, even number of flying hours, Tiger Meets, or other special events. To their official 40-year anniversary FBW 34 from Memmingen colored TORNADO IDS 46+01. After more than 12 years following the transition from F-104G "Starfighter" to the TORNADO this was the first special painted TORNADO. It - the special paint - reflected the unity between the wing and the wonderful landscape around it, the landscape called "Allgäu" in german. The next "coloured cow" which was to follow in 2002 was unfortunately also the last one. It was 44+56 the so called "Last Call" jet.
