Austrian Hercules

Making a RIAT debut this year will be the Austrian Air Force with their Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) role demonstration. In an exciting display sequence, this C-130K Hercules will simulate an intruder entering RAF Fairford airspace only to be intercepted by a pair of Austrian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons (known as the EF2000) scrambling from the runway with orders to force the Hercules to land. The Austrian fleet of three C-130K aircraft were all previously flown by the Royal Air Force and are all now based at Hörsching Air Base.
