Spanish Air Force Eurofighter EF2000

The Air Tattoo is delighted to be welcoming back the Eurofighter EF2000 Typhoon jet fighter from the Spanish Air Force which last made an appearance here at RAF Fairford back in 2007 when it performed in the flying display. Spain is one of the four partner nations involved with the development and production of the Eurofighter. Spanish aircraft are built at Getafe, near Madrid by Airbus Defence & Space. Spain plans for a fleet of 87 Eurofighters and the aircraft is now one of two fighter types serving in the Spanish inventory operating alongside with the McDonnell Douglas EF-18 Hornet. Spanish Eurofighters are currently based at two sites in Spain, at Albacete in the east of the country and at Moron near Seville.
