Eurofighter EF-2000 Typhoon S (MM7343 / 36-52) from the Italian Air Force at the RIAT 2018, RAF Fairford (United Kingdom)
The Eurofighter EF-2000 Typhoon is a twin-engine, canard–delta wing, multirole fighter. The Typhoon was designed originally as an air superiority fighter and is manufactured by a consortium of Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo that conducts the majority of the project through a joint holding company, Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH formed in 1986. The Eurofighter is produced in single-seat (S) and twin-seat (T) variants.
The twin-seat variant is not used operationally, but only for training.
The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's largest military air show, held annually over the third weekend in July,
usually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.
The show typically attracts a total of 150.000 to 160.000 spectators over the weekend.
The 2018 Air Tattoo will reflect the 100th anniversary of the RAF with a commemoration
and celebration of a century of service to the United Kingdom and its allies.
