Tornado GR4 Checklists

Trevor B made this Freedom of Information request to Royal Air Force

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Royal Air Force,

I have seen in others FOI requests that the Tornado GR4 Flight Crew Checklist AP101B-4104-14A, Mission Operating Procedures AP101B-4104-14B, Conventional Weapons Checklist AP101B-4104-14C and Aircrew Landaway Flight Servicing Schedule AP101B-4104-5Y have already been released.

However looking at the Flight Crew Checklist, Pages E-1 through E-112 are missing along with pages R-1 through R-36 of the Mission Operating Procedures. I am also seeing reference to Supplementary Flight Reference Cards AP101B-4104-14F.

I was inquiring as to whether or not these sections are available and if there are any other publications in the flight reference cards series for the Tornado GR4. I was also wondering if any more information may be unredacted from the already released publications.

Yours faithfully,

Trevor B

Dear Royal Air Force,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Royal Air Force's handling of my FOI request 'Tornado GR4 Checklists'

I feel that there was to much information redacted under sections 26 and 27 of FOI, with the documents that were provided to me. While information of weapon systems and the like being withheld is understandable, I don't think things such as engine idle RPMs or hydraulic pressures should be considered sensitive. If possible I would like to request another public interest test of the provided documents.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

Yours faithfully,

Trevor Bodnar
