There are three Tornado F3 squadrons, an Air Defence RAF Regiment squadron, an Air Experience Flight and a University Air Squadron at RAF Leeming. As announced, in the 1993 Statement on the Defence Estimates "Defending Our Future (CM 2270) the Tornado F3 force will be reorganised into six squadrons, rather than seven as at present. As a result one of the Tornado F3 squadrons (No. 23 Squadron) at RAF Leeming will disband on 1 April 1994.There are no current plans for further changes at RAF Leeming.
