Formed in 1916 as part of the Royal Flying Corps, 43 Squadron RAF saw distinguished service in both world wars, producing a number of aces. Disbanded in July 2009, the Panavia Tornado F3 was the final aircraft operated by the squadron, used as an interceptor fighter to protect the UK's airspace off the coast of both Scotland and with 1435 flight, over the Falkland Islands. 43 Squadron also helped enforce the no-fly zone over Iraq after the first Gulf War. ZG757 was painted in this striking gloss black scheme to celebrate the Squadron's 90th anniversary in 2006, carrying it in various guises throughout the year.
