Eurofighter Typhoon Pride of the NATO alliance
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard-delta wing, multirole
fighter. The Typhoon was designed and is manufactured by a consortium
of three companies; EADS, Alenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems, who conduct
the majority of affairs dealing with the project through a joint holding
company, Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH, which was formed in 1986. The
project is managed by the NATO Eurofighter and Tornado Management Agency,
which also acts as the prime customer.
Development of the aircraft effectively began in 1983 with the Future
European Fighter Aircraft programme, a multinational collaborative effort
between Germany, France, UK, Italy and Spain. Due to disagreements over
design authority and operational requirements, France left the consortium
to independently develop the Dassault Rafale instead. A technology
demonstration aircraft, the British Aerospace EAP, first took flight on 6
August 1986; the first prototype of the finalised Eurofighter made its
first flight on 27 March 1994. The name of the aircraft, Typhoon, was
formally adopted in September 1998; the first production contracts were
signed that same year.
Political issues in the partner nations significantly protracted the
Typhoon's development; the sudden end of the Cold War reduced European
demand for fighter aircraft, and there was debate over the cost and work
share of the Eurofighter. The Typhoon was introduced into operational
service in 2003. Currently, the type has entered service with the Austrian
Air Force, the Italian Air Force, the German Air Force, the Royal Air
Force, the Spanish Air Force, and the Royal Saudi Air Force. The Royal Air
Force of Oman has also been confirmed as an export customer, bringing the
procurement total to 571 aircraft as of 2013.
Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH (English: Eurofighter Fighter aircraft GmbH)
is a multinational company that co-ordinates the design, production and
upgrade of the Eurofighter Typhoon, this includes incorporating the jet
engines designed and manufactured by EuroJet turbo GmbH.
Founded in 1986, it has its head office in Hallbergmoos,
Bavaria, Germany. The company is owned by the major aerospace companies
of the four Eurofighter partner nations:

Paris Air Show 2013 - Su-35 vertical take-off + Air Show (HD)
The Sukhoi SU-35 made a stunning performance at the Paris Air Show 2013.
There were a few maneuvers I have never seen before and sometimes this
skilled pilot made it very difficult for me to follow the plane. Usually I
am only filming civilian planes but the performance of this SU-35 was so
impressive so that I had to upload the footage.
Thanks for watching, I hope you liked it and please don` t forget to rate.

RAF CONINGSBY TYPHOON ACTION - JUNE 21st 2013 (airshowvision)
Here is a relatively loose edit of some RAF Typhoon action from RAF
Coningsby in Lincolnshire on 21st June 2013.
I had hoped to include the 2013 Typhoon display in this film, but the lousy
British Weather put paid to that, and much more of the action too, but
there is still much to see on this video despite the bad weather.
All the Coningsby Typhoon squadrons are featured here, including the newly
painted 41 squadron Typhoon jets - there is also a couple of 6 squadron
The opening section is the preparation and starting up of the display jet
as it sets off for Blackpool, then some early morning action as a mass take
off takes place . . . and the best action comes to those who make it to the
very end of the video!
This aircraft will be performing at the south bay, Scarborough North Yorks
on Saturday at 1pm followed by the Red Arrows at 2pm - if you live in
Yorkshire don't miss this amazing opportunity!!!
