This year’s team, from 29(R) Squadron, comprises a specialist from every aircraft trade along with support and management teams to assist both the pilot and the trades, all of whom work closely together to bring you the dazzling spectacle that is the Typhoon Display. The Typhoon will arrive at Airbourne low and fast – listen out for the unmistakable roar! 2016’s display sequence includes Aileron Rolls, the Hesitation Roll, the Dirty Barrel Roll, Configured Barrel Roll and, the distinctive Velocity Vector Roll where the aircraft appears to skid around the sky followed by high speed passes, all to give you a unique view of the aircraft. Look out for the ¼ Clover manoeuvres which give a stunning silhouette of the aircraft. The aircraft will be pointed at the crowd before breaking away into the second Velocity Vector Roll. At the end of the display the Typhoon will rocket skyward as pilot Mark performs three Aileron Rolls in the climb to 9000ft. In 2008 the Typhoon became the first and only current Royal Air Force fast jet to be declared Multi-Role capable and can deliver weapons quickly with a very high degree of accuracy and will provide the backbone of RAF fast jet operations for many years to come.
