New Kid on the Block
The squadrons at RAF Leuchars are now operational with the Typhoon, as ably, and very noisily, demonstrated at the station Open Day on 10 Sept. Despite poor visibility, a very low cloud base and one session of heavy rain most of the display went ahead (one stand did a roaring trade in umbrellas!). The Typhoon is seriously impressive with full afterburner take-off and a vertical climb to many thousand feet (weather cleared at end of day) - sad to realise this will be the last RAF hosted event on the base as it closes in the near future.
