Because Hawk's are trainers, so they don't need to be low-vis. Tornado IDS's are bombers, so are painted 'earthy' colours. Tornado ADV's are fighters, so are painted a sky coloured 'gull grey'.

Phantom's aren't used by the UK any more, but they're painted an appropriate colour for the surroundings they're most likely to be used in in other air forces.

Akrotiri is in Cyprus, and is more likely to be the place these aircraft were seen.
