As aviation enthusiasts finally came to terms with the fact that the Panavia Tornado GR4 had been withdrawn from RAF service during March 2019, many will have been pleased to note that one of the final Tornado squadrons was to immediately re-equip with Eurofighter Typhoons. As one of the two final RAF Tornado squadrons, No IX(B) Squadron is one of the oldest units in the Royal Air Force and one which had been associated with the Tornado since the aircraft entered service back in 1982. Its 'Green Bat' emblem adorned the tail of one of the specially presented Tornados during the final months of the aircraft’s RAF service and on the day No. IX Squadron surrendered their Tornado GR4s at Marham, they immediately re-formed at RAF Lossiemouth, this time equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon.Detailed cockpit with pilot figure

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft and can be deployed as part of any aspect of air operations including supporting peace keeping, air policing and combat. With its tall sharply swept tail, delta wing and canards mounted before the wing, the Typhoon is easily recognizable and is a vital RAF aircraft. Ten Eurofighter Typhoons from RAF Coningsby and Leuchars took part in enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya in 2011.
