The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine canard-delta wing multirole aircraft. It is being designed and built by a consortium of three separate partner companies: Alenia Aeronautica, BAE Systems and EADS working through a holding company Eurofighter GmbH which was formed in 1986. Limited edition of only 2,000 pieces. Sure to be a future classic.
The aircraft has entered service with the UK Royal Air Force, the German Luftwaffe, the Italian Air Force, the Spanish Air Force and the Austrian Air Force. It is also in production for Saudi Arabia. No.3 Squadron (Royal Flying Corps) was formed at Larkhill on 13th May 1912 from Company of the Air Battalion Royal Engineers. No.3 Sqn was actually the first squadron to receive heavier than air flying machines, hence the motto "Tertius primus erit" meaning "The third shall be the first". No.3 Sqn became the first operational front line squadron equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon on 31st March 2006. 3(F) Sqn was declared operational in 2007.
