The Tornado is a two-seated, vintage-style biplane used by the Knothole Freedom Fighters. It is typically piloted by Tails, with Sonic or others walking on its wings. The plane is owned by Sonic himself, and as such he has also been seen to be the pilot at times.
The earliest known utilisation of the Tornado was during the time Doctor Eggman planned to launch the Death Egg for the first time. Piloted by Tails, he and Sonic uses the plane to chase after Eggman's Wing Fortress as the Death Egg launched into space. (VG: StH2)
- In the video games, there are multiple Tornado models. Aside from the original red Tornado, there is also a "Tornado 2" and "Tornado 3", both of which are purple. Whether this applies to the comic continuity post-SGW is unknown.
