Users drew attention to the "leaking" plane "Tornado" German Air Force

German Air Force Command announces joint training with aviation partner countries for NATO, as well as partner countries "outside of NATO." At the same time, training was conducted without the participation of the US Air Force crews.


In Germany itself, political scientists and military experts praised the move by the German Ministry of Defense as a kind of “response” to Donald Trump, who stated that it was “inexpedient to provide German military assistance in the same volume”.

Recall a statement by the US president:

We protect them from Russia, and they buy gas from it.

The crews of the British Air Force, as well as the Swiss Air Force (the country is not a NATO member) took part in aviation training.

We used the aircraft "Typhoon", "Tornado" and other military aircraft. Among other things, refueling was carried out over the northern regions of Germany, as well as over the North Sea.



After publishing photos from these trainings, British users drew attention to the “leaking” plane of the German Air Force Tornado (the first photo to the material).

From comments:

Can someone tell me what comes out of the tail of the German Tornado? Fuel?

One answer:

I just spoke with a friend who is an aircraft mechanic on the Tornado, he says it's fuel. Not sure why it leaks fuel when refueling, possibly due to some problems with the valves. He told me that he actually worked on the same plane, and he often had such problems.


Other users suggested that this could be a deliberate bleeding of fuel, since refueling "could have been more formal in nature when the tanks were full by a significant percentage."

A couple more photos from training:




One of the British users, in a commentary on the Royal Air Force’s Twitter post, said that “I didn’t know that German aviation still refers to itself as the Luftwaffe, as in the dark years of World War II.”

    Isn't it fire hazardous? All the same, "exhaust" is also behind ...

      At one time, Kozhedub noted that it is difficult to set fire to planes at such an altitude, too rarefied atmosphere. Well, kerosene at this speed will simply be instantly sprayed.

        Maybe you misunderstood? ..... The engine can be "set on fire" even at altitudes of up to 14 meters .... but you will not be able to land in an emergency with the engine not extinguished ... 100% will not work. crying
        If it flows by gravity, then ......... crying crying if the engines are far spaced (F-14) the same.
        Fuel on different types merges under high pressure at a speed of 1-2 tons / min.

        On which one? ..... And the presence of the MFR of the engines .. do not take into account?

        Not even that. Explosion and tanning require a certain proportion of combustible gases and air. There is no such proportion, there is too much air, and little fuel.
        Only if you bring a match straight to the tail, where is the very beginning of the stream. But it won’t work either, kerosene is cold there, and cold is not burning, it needs to be heated first to let the evaporation go.

      This method is widely used in various branches of aviation.

      I confess that, due to stereotypes, I also associate the word "Luftwaffe" primarily with the Wehrmacht. Although I know perfectly well that "Luftwaffe" is not a proper name, but simply the air force.

      What do you need to know here? Air Force they are in the German Air Force. In Germany, they try not to use this name. The GDR had its own wording.

        "Are you sure it's a leak?
        Maybe "
        why pour fuel and then pour it? Isn’t it easier to not pour?

              Roma hello. hi When refueling, there is a valve (from overflow type), they really weren’t pouring into empty tanks, that's why it zipped.

          In the army they don't do it "as easy as it is", in the army they do it "as it should be"!
          And as expected only the commander knows !!!
          Reasoning here!

      In the meantime, such statements from Bloomberg sound:

      The world turned upside down: Germany is preparing sanctions against the United States

      The American media has discovered something that should shock Washington DC more than the discovery of life on Mars or blooming gardens on Jupiter. Business news agency Bloomberg claims that the German political elite has revealed national dignity, because this is the only way to interpret reports that a document is maturing inside the German government containing sanctions against the United States, which should be adopted if Washington decides to impose "hellish sanctions "against participants in the construction of Nord Stream 2."
      The agency says: "Germany is preparing to retaliate against the United States if President Donald Trump fulfills his threat to kill the Nord Stream 2 pipeline with additional sanctions. According to two German officials familiar with the discussions, the Merkel government is considering exerting pressure to take coordinated action at the level of the European Union.

    It seems to me that the tail unit is not connected in any way with the fuel tanks. or is a tornado connected?

    The beds at Hans are quite crooked. I thought they all ruled. The fact that this is a deliberate reset is obvious. but why if at this moment there is a refueling. Maybe it's a smoke show. There are also trainings to detect stray planes, in the event of a navigation failure, the plane dumps some fuel, usually over the sea, so that it is easier to detect.

    I saw a tornado in the 90s. In Allapul, Scotland. They had a flight zone. So I looked at it from the top of the Maodedun’s side, walked close and low with our steamboat. With a checkel, a child would have fallen into the air. It’s very beautiful. From dvigunov ears are stuffed up.
