Operation Granby - RAF Laarbruch
All the squadrons based at RAF Laarbruch took part in Operation GRANBY. Tornado - No 16 Sqn 22 Jan 1991 ZA467 - Tornado GR1 of 16 Sqn flew into the ground during a low level loft attack mission on Ar Rutbah radar site, Iraq. Both crew were killed. As Sqn Ldrs Lennox and Weeks failed to check in after the attack, the leader realised that the explosion he had seen after the attack was probably caused by their aircraft crashing. Tornado Abschuss - No XV Sqn
