Iraqi sources have stated that on January 19, 1991 an Iraqi MiG-29A flown by Captain Jameel Sayhood was scrambled to intercept incoming Tornados. Sayhood says he climbed above the low-flying aircraft and attacked from behind. He selected an R-60MK AAM and fired, destroying RAF Tornado ZA467/EK. Western observers have a different version of the event. According to them ZA467/EK was indeed shot down but not by a MiG-29 but by a SAM. On that same day another RAF Tornado, ZA396/GE, was also lost to a SAM.Opening canopy
