Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 - UK

Flight Lieutenant Adam O'Hare, from 29(R) Sqn based at RAF Coningsby, will demonstrate the multirole capability of one of the world's most advanced fast jets at this summer's Air Tattoo. Displaying under the callsign "Anarchy 1", Flt Lt O'Hare will be flying a specially painted Typhoon which has affectionately been nicknamed "Blackjack" by enthusiasts.

Easily recognisable from any angle, the BAE Systems Typhoon will be put through its paces performing in the flying display on all three days at the Air Tattoo, treating audiences to an insight into the aircraft's incredible manoeuvrability and immense power.

The cutting-edge technology of the Typhoon provides the RAF with a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, including air policing, peace support and high intensity conflict.

Joining Blackjack at RIAT 2022 will be a pair of Typhoon FGR4 on static display, one representing RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland from 1 Squadron and the other representing RAF Coningsby from 12 Squadron. The latter is a joint UK/Qatar squadron currently training Qatari Air Force pilots to fly and fight the Typhoon and the unit will deploy to Qatar in the summer to provide air defence for the FIFA World Cup.
