It has been 29 years since the Air Tattoo was visited by fighters from the Kuwaiti Air Force. In 1993 it was a pair of F/A-18C Hornets on delivery from the United States. Now in 2022, it is a Eurofighter Typhoon which is on its way to be delivered to Kuwait from the final production line in Italy and has diverted to RAF Fairford to be on static display at this years RIAT. The Typhoons being built for Kuwait are currently the most advanced in existence and are fitted with the new CAPTOR-E AESA.
