    Default Eurofighter Typhoon - Demonstration of maneuverability



    Pretty amazing maneuvers towards the audience I think.

    Hope you enjoy this video. I captured it at Le Bourget 2011.

    Nice video...I liked the loop into the final approach at the end.

    Question? I once read somewhere along time ago that the Eurofighter was the only modern fighter jet that could do some very strong manovering whilst supersonic. Is this true? as it's been bugging me for ages.

    Oh, Canada. Why must you persist with this F-35 nonsense?

    No. Both the F-22 and Tomcat can / could maneuver at supersonic speeds. The whole reason the Tomcat had the glove vanes was for this. Not sure how the F-15 compares.

    Because they don't buy their planes to counter Mig-21s and Mig-29Bs.

    The above photos are real, can't comment on the radio calls.
    It was filmed over Lincolnshire from a C-130 for a RAF Recruitment TV Advert.

    Not sure if any of that dialogue has some truth in it, but that Eurofighter did get pretty up close to that Herc.



    (4:52 onwards)


    Nice footage, OP. Which Air Force was that Eurofighter from? RAF?

    Are those filmcrew standing on the open door of the Hercules with no safety line whatsoever? They are braver than I

    I was referring to the Eurofighter in the video the OP posted, not the one in the RAF recruitment video.
