Unveiling for RAF Typhoon Display Team's new Typhoon

  • 3 months ago
The Typhoon Display Team is bidding farewell to the 'BlackJack'  Typhoon and unveiled its successor on Monday April 22, after more than six months of careful and secretive planning.
The new, as yet un-named Typhoon, has been given a different paint scheme, which was completed by Serco, to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
The inspiration was to pay tribute to the RAF Hawker Typhoon, which was flown on D-Day by 257 Sqn and where the modern Typhoon takes its name from. The Hawker’s original paint scheme has been replicated, with a few minor tweaks, onto the Display Team’s new aircraft.
The new Typhoon will be debuted at the Midlands Air Festival on May 31.
