A sequel to "Tornado Down", this book tells the story of what made John Peters and John Nichol become pilots, what their lives have been like since the Gulf War, and what it is like to be in the RAF, flying immensely complex, million-pound machines and training for war in peacetime. John Peters, now a fourship leader and squadron authorizer, still flies Tornado bombers from a new base in Germany. John Nichol has changed to fighters, going back to basic training in a new craft. And now in the skies, rehearsing for combat, they stalk each other in a deadly game of chess in the air. Life in the RAF has changed completely in the last years. There is no longer a single defined enemy, but many small conflicts, sometimes under a command other than their own. John Nichol and John Peters have had to adapt fast to new ways, to new technical skills, and to new dangers. "Tornado Two" is suitable for anyone who wants to understand what it is like to be in the armed services in these troubled times; to fly these amazing machines in exercises which can turn into real raids, and in war games that are potentially lethal; and to see what happens to John Peters and John Nichol in the year following the Gulf War.
