The Dubai Airshow is to offer an even more
spectacular military aviation flying display this year. Daily from
15 to 19 November, visitors will be able to witness the first-ever
appearance at the show of the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.
The Typhoon, an agile, multi-role aircraft,
specially optimised for high-altitude, supersonic air combat,
while retaining considerable ground-attack capabilities, will be
flown by the UK's Royal Air Force (RAF).
The aircraft is built by a four-nation
consortium comprising BAE Systems of the UK, Alenia Aeronautica of
Italy, EADS Deutschland and EADS Spain.
Alison Weller, Director of show organiser F&E
Aerospace, said, "The appearance of the Typhoon jet will confirm that
Dubai Airshow will now really be a high-tech, state-of-the-art
military aviation display, illustrating the cutting-edge nature of defence in the Middle East."
