I wonder why McLaren has chosen the Tornado engine for its Maverick LSR challenger?
Four years ago I talked with an Australian pilot at an east coast fighter station who had recent returned from a stint with the American Air Force. He is description of the Tornado, nice aircraft that it was, suggested that he knew of much more powerful engines.
I should add that I did not revolve in such circles. The aircraft I flew had a cruising speed of 102 mph and a permissible maximum of 200 downhill. GV Parker,
