ZE785, Operational Evaluation Unit, RAF Station Waddington, Great Britain, 2003
Since 1987, the performance evaluation and weapons and systems applications of the Tornado F.3 aircraft were conducted at OEU located at Waddington airbase. Operations of this unit facilitated the incorporation of this aircraft type into
the combat units and its performance assessment continued during the routine unit operations with the objective to achieve
the maximum utilization of its abilities.
In 2003 decision was made to disband OEU and in the following year ZE785 became a “canvas” for the attractive marking created on the occasion of OEU operation’s termination.
