The Tornado and Jaguar crews typically wore the sand coloured flying suits during Op Granby & Desert Storm with the standard safety equipment over the top. The Bucc crews usually wore the usual green flying suits.

Some of the Jaguar pilots also wore sand coloured flying helmets.

Oh, and let's not forget the Victor crews.....

Dont forget the Tornado life jacket is different than that worn by the Jag & Bucc crew's as it has sleeves,the crews also often wore locally made survival vests as well under the main life vest,usually ran up by the squippers iirc
