£1150 (ono) - An opportunity to own this special original painting created to pay tribute to the retirement of the RAF Tornado. The painting was completed February 2019, the month before the official retirement. The painting is also signed by four Tornado pilots, each of which are very significant.

(Latin for "Tonka Tributes")


GR1 ZA586 - The first Tornado delivered into squadron service with IX (B) Squadron

GR4 ZD716 - With special 31 Squadron Retirement 'Gold Star' scheme


Squadron Leader Mike Stephens tragically lost his life when ZA586 crashed on the 27th September 1983 on the Sandringham Estate at Wolferton. The painting is therefore also a tribute to Stephens

Framing is a very personal/individual choice and therefore the painting is unframed. Also, due to the heavy weight paper used, it is not possible to roll the painting for shipping. For this reason the painting is only available to UK  based customers and I will hand deliver directly myself. Delivery charge will be calculated based upon location.

If you are based in the UK and would like to purchase this painting, then in the first instance please email me with the town that the painting would be delivered to so I can provide you with a delivery price. Once agreed the delivery charge will be added to the  options at checkout for you to select from in order to finalise your purchase.
