Austrian Ef2000 2

Eurofighter EF2000 (x2) - Austria

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, a pair of Eurofighters will scramble from RAF Fairford to intercept a C-130K Hercules simulating an intruder with orders to force it to land.

Tasked exclusively with the air defence of Austria, the fleet is officially known as the EF2000 within the Austrian Air Force, who operate 15 aircraft, are all based at Zeltweg Air Base.
