Seen a lot in the lake district. The Tornado weighs in at 25 tonnes all up, the Typhoon 20 tonnes. Really impressive when you see them flying below you in the valleys

We had something go whizzing overhead when myself and the Family were visiting a Cider Farm in Sommerset this summer. By the noise we heard, it sounded like a real close lightning strike.

I remember paragliding in Wales and there was meant to be a system in place so that we knew if there was going to be any low flying in the area we were flying in for obvious reasons - I can report that watching a Tornado fly beneath you close enough to feel it is a very scary thing indeed!
