The close up of the tail of 41(R) Sqn Tornado GR4 ZA614 shows why the unit has a reason more than most to celebrate the 2012 London Olympics. The squadron's CO during the early war years was Sqn Ldr (retired as Gp Capt) Don Finlay, a former Olympic hurdler with two medals, as shown above on the rudder. The aircrafts serial; 'EB-Z' is also the same as the Spitfire allocated to Sqn Ldr Finlay. This tail was painted only a week before the picture was taken, when the aircraft was sent to RAF Lossiemouth.
