Background story

Shown is RECCE TORNADO 44+65 of Recce Wing 51 "Immelmann" in Schleswig with the special tiger paint for the Tiger Meet 2001 in Kleine Brogel, Belgium. The airplane is shown with underwing tanks (one visible) on the inside wing station and one air-to-air missiles AIM-9L (i) SIDEWINDER (one visible) on the inside pylon.

This print is the "wing version" of this tigerjet, which means the wing patch is shown on it instead of the patch of the 512 Tiger Squadron. Recce wing 51 was until 2010 in the situation that the 512 patch as well as the wing patch showed the head of a black panther. The situation changed in 2010 when the 512 squadron converted to a new mission (UAV) and got a new patch without a big cat.
