Flight Lieutenant David Waddington and his navigator, Flight Lieutenant Robbie Stewart, were taken prisoner when their Panavia Tornado GR. 1 was shot down during a low-level bombing sortie over Iraq during the 1991 Gulf War. Both men were injured on ejecting from the aircraft, after which they endured six weeks of captivity and interrogation in Iraq before being released at the end of the war. David went on to command No. 9 Squadron before serving as station commander at RAF Cranwell and at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. He was the Tornado Force commander and was also responsible for the F-35 – the RAF’s newest and most advanced combat aircraft – before retiring from the RAF as an Air Commodore.
