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. (From Wikipedia)

I remember the newspaper of these years, Typhoon was an attempt to create the first European fighter after long years of use the American jets. Good capture of the fighter's takeoff. TFS!

another connection with my family's history.
My father served in Jagdgeschwader 73 (Fighter Wing 73) of German Air Force, operating F-86 Sabres until 1967. Renamed several times and deployed from Rhineland-Palatinate to an airbase of former German Democratic Republic near the Baltic Sea, JG 73 now operates the Eurofighter and serves as a training unit for German and Austrian Typhoon pilots.
I also had the honour to serve in that unit in the times when they operated Fiat G-91 and McDonnell-Douglas F-4F Phantom, but would have preferred this aircraft with wheels up and locked.

Good view of this Typhoon and particularly of the cockpit. Clear blue sky allows for clear details.

Another great shot of an aircraft.
I like very much the details, and most of all, how we can see inside the cockpit.

You chose a very well position of the plane, also everything is wonderful sharp and clear with one pilot to the oaken towel.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
