The majority of the Tornado fleet has already been dismantled and the remaining aircraft have been or are in the process of being transferred for use as gate guardians to commemorate the aircraft's distinguished service, for training purposes or as gifts to museums to inspire future generations of RAF personnel. A small number of Tornados will be disposed of after the aircraft's retirement from RAF service.
