A very nice movie indeed... yes, I have also waited for a long time... I just love the plane... Maybe they will pay a visit here next summer...

Great bit of video there, thanks


Anyone else notice how actual examples of the Typhoons awesome manouverability are conspicuous by their absence, be it on video or at airshows?

I'm starting to think this is a deliberate act designed not to give too much away. I say this because the Tiffie I saw over the North Sea while on my hols was flinging itself all over the place and was far more impressive than any public demonstration I have yet seen, which have all looked distinctly flat beside displays given by almost any other fast jet type.

will be great when they get the full amount of 235+ typhoons
best part of it is that they just need to change a bit of software on it to change its roles


the video is much better when saved on file

Exactly what i mean... When you see the plane fly you just get crazy... It's just so free, so wonderful... And so much better than the Raptor...

Beautiful looking aircraft, wish we were getting a few here in Australia. We are most likely replacing all our F/A-18s and F-111s with the F-35 JSF. I'm not so sure about it, it really is putting all our eggs in the one basket.

Just an aside, is the Spitfire in the video in some sort of Maritime colours? Haven't seen any painted up like that before.

(Another aside! Did anyone see that 4-part series "Spitfire Ace"? What a great documentary!)

The Spit in the video is a photo recce version and is painted in RAF PRU blue, which just means Photo Recconaissance Unit, and was the colour specially devised for the role, after the war some RAF fighter squadrons (Hornet and Vampire ones mainly) used this coulour on the undersides instead of light aircraft grey, while retaining camouflage on the upper surfaces.

Wow I just realised I know one of the pilots interviewed there! I can't wait to see this regularly around UK bases. Hopefully should be almost fully implemented by the time I hope (fingers crossed still) get in, well either that or the JCA but that's a whole new article for when it gets to this stage

Nice vid and a very nice jet. I wish Canada would get these to replace our old CF-18's, insted of wasting money on upgrading them, so that we can use them for God knows how many more decades.

Thanks for that Bodrul, excellent bit of video.


That plane looks awesome, very cool intro with the Spit too
(and showing it passing the Tornado in the background was a neat moment I thought).
