The attached keyring was once flying all over the world as part of the fuselage for the Royal Air Force. Tailfins managed to get a small piece after being scrapped to turn into products.

This GR.1 rolled off the production line and took its first flight in December 1981. This particular aircraft was one of the early ones during the many years they were made. It had the build number BS033 and registered ZA590.

The Royal Air Force took delivery a few months later in early 1982. This multi role aircraft had space for two people and could smash through the sound barrier with ease. In fact, the maximum speed was Mach 2.2 using it’s powerful RB.199 engines.

Research indicates this Tornado was with 9 (Bomber) and 45 Squadrons during its operational life. Interestingly, ZA590 doesn’t appear to have been upgraded to a GR.4 and remained a GR.1 until it was eventually withdrawn. After 20 years of service, the aircraft was scrapped.

Our Tailfins keychains, have been crafted from the left hand intake cover panel L207.

These unique and individual pieces are hand finished which come presented with a limited edition backing card. The Tailfins may have blemishes from years in the sky making each of them one of a kind!
